the world's most spectacular roads

Kawah Putih is a striking crater lake located about 50 km south of Bandung in West Java in Indonesia. The lake of volcanic origin is situated 2,430 meters above sea level. Its serene beauty attracts quite a tourist crowd.

The lake (in English White Crater) is near to Ciwidey, a place that is very well known for its strawberry. On sunny days, the colour of the lake is stark and bright and on cloudy days, the entire crater can be shrouded in mist making for an utterly eerie experience.

 

The paved road to acces the lake is called Kawah Putih Road. Access is gained from the left of the main road travelling south by entering the park and proceeding along a 5 km access road. If you want to get here try to come early in the morning, especially on weekends because by noon it’s crowded with local tourists. Kawah Putih is incredibly popular with local daytrippers and this will impact on when is best to visit. Sunday is by far the busiest day of the week, closely followed by Saturday.
