I didn’t take any watery shot lately. So, these come from my archives captured in 2012. The Ciwidey White Crater is a unique and beautiful place that often used for prewedding photo session, as well as advertising and movie shooting. It’s a very popular mount tourist destination in the south Bandung area -located in Patuha mount hillside (West Java, Indonesia).
This White Crater resembles a smoky lake surrounded by the stone cliff and on the other side, you will see a slope slightly like a beach with white sand. I heard that the water color is changeable; depends on the majority of mineral inside the crater -it can be white, green or blue. The water was blue that day.
Besides enjoying the view and taking photos, other activities like eating, drinking, swimming, being too long and too close to the crater aren’t suggested as the crater still releases sulphur gas. Wearing a mask is good for precaution; visitors may suffer dizziness.
