Exoticism of Tangkuban Parahu Volcano Mountain



Tangkuban Parahu. This volcano mountain is already famous for its amazing natural tourism park with views of the active volcanic crater located at an altitude of 2,084 meters above sea level. The mountain is surrounded by lush pine trees and the expanse of tea gardens in the vicinity, do not be surprised if the scenery is so amazing that it is interesting to local and foreign tourists who want to enjoy the beautiful Mount Tangkuban Parahu.

Sangkuriang legend

Mount Tangkuban Parahu is closely related to the Sangkuriang Legend. Sangkuriang fell in love with his own mother, Dayang Sumbi. But to thwart his own son's intention to marry Dayang Sumbi, Sangkuriang was given the condition to make a lake and a boat overnight. But his efforts failed and Sangkuriang was angry and kicked the boat he had made upside down. This boat forms the Tangkuban Perahu Mountain.

Tourist attraction

The attraction that we can get when visiting Mount Tangkuban Perahu are 3 large craters that are already famous on this mountain, the Kawah Ratu as the largest, Domas Crater and Upas Crater. all three have their own characteristics, in the Kawah Ratu we can enjoy a very amazing view by seeing the size of the crater with a puff of smoke that indicates that the mountain is still active. Next Domas Crater, here you can boil the eggs until the eggs are completely cooked. Upas Crater, one of the highest craters on this mountain and need extra energy to get to the upas crater because of its highest location. But its beauty will be very beautiful with the efforts that have been made. Indeed business will not lie results! Hehehe

As an Active Volcano

Mount Tangkuban Parahu that we know is an active volcano in the middle of Bandung. One time this mountain could be active and stop all tourist activities and livelihoods that sell souvenirs around Kawah Ratu. As we know this mountain was active a few years ago, and was erupted again on August 2, 2019 which caused panic to occur by tourists who were visiting this mountain. From the beginning until now, eruptions have almost always occurred at the bottom of Kawah Ratu and we know that the puff of smoke that we always see when visiting them is not merely ordinary smoke but a sign that this mountain is still active. Fortunately the eruption that occurred last week had little impact on the citizens of the city of Bandung and was still at level II or Waspada with a safe distance of 1.5 kilometers from Kawah Ratu.
