In another time, my uncle from Jakarta visited me. He was not alone, bringing his friends. This time we decided going to Tangkuban Perahu. Actually I wanted to go to Kawah Putih, but something changed my mind. Its traffic fucking jam. There were three big events at once in Bandung. So many forbidden road at that time. Imagine, from Jalan Suci to Simpang Dago, it spent about two hours. My feet felt like stone, pushed and pulled the brake and gas pedal.
Tangkuban Perahu is located at upper Lembang, Kabupaten Bandung. We arrived there at 1 pm, took 3.5 hours to reach that place. Normally, you will arrive in one hour.
Tangkuban Perahu is active volcano. We can see the caldera with boiled water in it, and much smoke flow up.
The temperature there is about 22 celcius. Its quite cool for Indonesian skin. I feel the wind blow and touch my skin, its so lovely. Oh, the smell is not so good, the smell of sulfur, for a long time, it could make us get dizzy. Overall, this mountain is beautiful.
We just spent a few minute there, then we go down the hill. There are pines everywhere. The scenery is so lovely, so green. That green scenery made my eyes relax. We stopped for a while to enjoy this view.
Its mandatory to visit Tangkuban Perahu if you’re going to Bandung. Easy beautiful little volcano 🙂
