Ciwidey and Kawah Putih
Ciwidey, 36 kms Southwest of Bandung is known for blacksmithing. The Ciwidey valley with terraced paddy fields and Mt. Malabar as a background provides a beautiful panorama. Reasonable accommodation is available in Ciwidey. Kawah Putih or white Crater, is 11 km further South from Ciwidey towards Cimanggu plus 5 km from the main road. Kawah Putih at certain times turns from tourquois to white. On clear day you can see Mt. Patuha standing proudly at the back of the high cliff at the other end of the Kawah Putih. Kawah Putih also has an interesting story which is written on a board at the entrance to the path leading to Kawah Putih.
