Mount Papandayan, standing at just 2,665 meters above sea level, is often referred to as “the mountain for beginners” by hikers. However, there are very few mountains in Indonesia that offer the same combination of natural features as Mt. Papandayan. It encompasses a stunning edelweiss meadow, a dead forest, and a steaming sulfur crater, all within its breathtaking view.

Mt. Papandayan


Mount Papandayan is a complex strata volcano situated at the island of Java. It has four large summit craters with the youngest of which was breached to the NE by collapse during a brief eruption in 1772 and contains active fumarole fields. This interesting place lies on the border of the Bandung and Garut regencies, about seventy kilometres south of Bandung and about 19,25 km from Garut.

At only 2,665 meters above sea level, Mount Papapandayan is known among hikers as “the mountain for beginners”. Yet there are very few mountains in Indonesia that are like Mt. Papandayan, cramming as it does into its breathtaking view a beautiful edelweiss meadow, a dead forest and a steaming sulfur crater.

In reality, the experience of climbing the stratovolcano complex located in Garut, West Java, frequently surpasses the expectations of almost all hikers and even those who, at first, might underestimate the still active volcano and take the ascent there lightly. Hikers can see and play in the warm water flowing in Mt. Papandayan small sulfur river during their climb to the top.
