Day Four – Lembang
Tangkuban Perahu – Kawah Domas – Trizara Resort – Dusun Bambu Leisure Park
The famous active volcano, Tangkuban Perahu , that resembles an upside-down boat which was last erupted in 2013. After checked out from Grand Tebu Hotel Bandung, we proceeded to Tangkuban Perahu. The coolest part of Tangkuban Perahu is it consists of three craters into which areas tourists can walk through. It is also the most expensive attractions among all.
We visited Kawah Domas, one of the three craters. You definitely need a guide to lead you through the woods. It felt surreal standing in the throbbing heart of an active volcano with foggy and chilling weather. What makes Kawah Domas unique is the various pools of varying temperature. Pick the right temperature and soak your feet in. You can even do mud spa – just top up some extra charges. While the boiling springs can even be used to boil eggs, which you can purchase from a nearby shop.
Checked in at Trizara Resort and we are so excited on this unique stay! It is a fully equipped luxury glamping, sleeping in a tent with breathtaking view! As it’s on higher ground, you’ll be greeted with a morning mist when you wake. We immerse ourselves in this gorgeous nature and chilling weather. You can gather around the bonfire while singing along to camping songs.
Then, we visited Dusun Bambu Leisure Park. It is a family leisure park with interesting architecture and activities! Not only it is kids’ paradise here but it is also adults’ favourite instagrammable spots!!
