Tangkuban Perahu

Nivedana Jalan
“No, no! The adventures first, explanations take such a dreadful time.”Tangkuban Perahu literally translates to “upturned boat”, which also describes the unusual shape of this volcano. It is one of the most popular tourist attractions near Bandung, with 3 craters accessible by car or foot.The most popular one – Queen’s crater, is the only crater in Indonesia where one can drive up, right to the rim of the crater and observe the sulfur fumes. In my opinion, regular volcano trekkers might not be very enthused by this. I was not too impressed myself. After all, it looks like any other crater in Indonesia, that too with a not so turquoise sulfur lake.
