The first place my friends and I visited upon our arrival in Bandung was Mt.Tangkuban Perahu. Tangkuban mean flipped and perahu mean boat. It literally mean the shape of the mountain looks like a flipped boat.
We took about 1 hour to reach the top of Tangkuban Perahu from Bandung town. Along the way, I can see the many variety of trees lining up to greet us. If the trees can talk, I believe they will be smiling and welcoming us. Hehehe…
The moment I stepped out of the MPV, I can feel the cool and windy air blowing towards my face. The windy air really made me alert again after a tiring journey from Jakarta. Within a few seconds later, I saw several Indonesian man rushing to us to sell their souvenirs. They seemed very desperate and had a lot of determination but I was very adamant not to buy from them.
As I walked past the sales people, I past thru several stalls selling souvenirs as well.
The below picture is one of the craters at Mt.Tangkuban Perahu.
Took some times to take pictures of me with the crater at the background to shown that I am there.
This is another view from the top of Tangkuban Perahu in Bandung.
More pictures on the souvenirs stalls.
This is a very cute little (I don’t know what is that) on the hand made slippers.
When I saw the trees in the below pictures, I straight away recalled my trip to Mt.Kinabalu in Sabah 4 years back. The trees looked more or less the same.
And I decided to sit down and ask my guide to take a picture of me.
You can view the volcano from many different areas. Some place required you to hike up to catch a different view angle of the volcano like the below picture.
Finally after about 45mins, we decided to head back to our hotel in the town.
And little did I know, we had another traffic jam on the way back. Sigh…Everywhere we went, it was traffic jam.
