Kawah Putih Ciwidey, Wisata Bandung

Kawah Putih Ciwidey (White Crater) | Indonesia

The White Crater is called Kawah Putih in Indonesia. It is located in Ciwidey, Bandung, West Java and has become a favorite place for pre-wedding photos. My husband took this scenery at our family vacation in August 2008.

Did you know that Kawah Putih Ciwidey is actually a part of the twin volcano Mount Patuha (which means "Mount of the Elders" in Sundanese)? It is the southeast volcanic part with bluish green water and a sulfur mine in its surroundings, whereas the other crater is dry.

We have tasted the famous drink called Bandrek Abah at Kawah Putih Ciwidey, Indonesia. It is a perfect drink to keep your body warm and basically consists of ginger with brown sugar. The strawberries sold in this area are my favorites too, because they really taste sweet. Not like most strawberries here in Indonesia, which to my opinion tend to be a little sour.

Anyway, don't forget to visit this area if you ever get to Kawah Putih Ciwidey as "Wisata Bandung". The word wisata means recreation in Indonesia. The beauty of this area is something not to be missed. Don't forget to prepare some warm jackets, because the nights can be cold out there.
