Tangkuban Perahu Crater Lembang Reviews
Tangkuban Perahu Crater May 25, 2011
Tangkuban perahu is a volcano, situated 30 km north of the city of Bandung in the direction of Lembang. It is the only crater in Indonesia that you can drive up to the top. Mount Tangkuban Perahu has a distinctive shape, and looks like an “overturned boat”. The huge crater is an astonishing view and you can walk around and explore the crater. Here you can smell sulfur fumes from the crater But it's forbidden to go down to see the crater because of the safety reason so it is just allowed to see the crater from the top of the mountain.
Tangkuban Perahu has definitely a significant role especially in the development of the surrounding Bandung Highlands. Its eruption contributed immensely to the formation and fertility of the hills north of Bandung when through its flow of lava carrying large boulders into the valleys, these formed huge cliffs over which waterfalls leapt to form the lake that today covers the Bandung plain.
So when you come to Bandung - Indonesia for leisure time dont forget to explore this splendid place in Lembang city.
