  Tangkuban Prahu
by agc

Sulphur-filled air, green trees, majestic volcanic scenery, cool weather. These all seems like a great location. However, due to its recent rise in popularity, Tangkuban Prahu has shed its charm and evolved to a similar scene found in other big Indonesian cities.

Traffic, crowds (be very annoyed on weekends!), tauts, stalls, smoke and pollution are the new ruler for this crater.

Negative points aside, Tangkuban prahu is really awesome as you can still see and hear the sulphur, steam etc. The clouds seem to roll in after 1, cooling things down.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
