MOUNT PAPANDAYAN

INTRODUCTION

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 ‘€œthe 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 ‘€” 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’€™s small sulfur river during their climb to the top.

This trip is suitable for beginner or even experienced trekkers. The trail is mostly flat. Only a little steep when about to reach Pondok Saladah camping area and we need to climb a little bit going up to Tegal Alun where the Edelweiss field is.
