There is a quite famous volcano in Bandung called Tangkuban Parahu. It is about an hour’s
drive from the centre of Bandung, easy to visit, you can drive or catch one of plenty of public buses going up this Volcano as it has good parking, a poorly maintained walking trail and several tourist shops and restaurants near the crater.There’s an ancient story about this volcano that apparently looks like an upside down boat.
