Bandung is the capital of West Java, Indonesia and the entry point to a variety of trekking
options in this area. From volcanoes to waterfalls, volcanic crater lakes to caves and of course jungle trekking – there is a lot to explore and plenty of options on Bandung trekking holidays. With any luck you may also get to see some of the exotic wildlife Indonesia has on offer.For those wanting to trek the moon like landscape of a volcano, Tangkuban Perahu is roughly 30km North of the city and offers trekking to the rim of this dormant volcano. You can view the hot springs and boiling mud and even buy a volcanically boiled egg.
Other volcanic trekking in Bandung spots includes Kawah Putih, which means white crater in Indonesian and is located 46km to the South of the city. The crater itself is part of Mount Patuha and forms a large lake with an island in the centre which you can visit by boat. The shore of the lake makes an excellent place to camp as you’ll get to wake to a sunrise over the bright coloured waters.
