Nature Tourism (White Creater )

Kawah Putih means White Crater, located at South Bandung (West Java). It took about 1,5 hours drive from Bandung. There are several tourism objects near Kawah Putih such as Cidaun, Situ Patenggang, Ranca Upas, Strawberry field (that we can pick our own strawberry), so make sure you visit several places when you go to South Bandung, due to it's quite far distance from Bandung.

Kawah Putih can have different color in their lake, because it is covered by an active (fumarolic) volcano which has been dormant since 1600. As such they water is typically acidic, saturated with volcanic gases, and cloudy with a strong greenish color.

Kawah Putih is arguably one of the most beautiful crater lakes on the island of Java, and quite probably in the Indonesian archipelago. It is located about 46 kilometers south of Bandung on Patuha mountain (2,434 meters above sea level). The crater was discovered by a Dutch-German botanist and platation estate owner Franz Wilhelm Junghuhn in 1837.

According to geologists, this crater lake was created as a result of Mt. Patuha volcanic erruption in the year 1000 - 1200.
