Still in south Bandung, not far from the Patengan Lake, you can find the great white caldera which local named "Kawah Putih." It locate in Patuha Mountain. Just like the other tourism, Kawah Putih have a mistery legend. Local civilliant belief, long time ago... The spirits have using that place for the meeting. Also.... the bird who has flight around that place, will be died soon. Mystical story belief for next generation until nowadays.
At that time, precisely in 1837. A scientist from Holland, Dr. Franz Wilhelm Junghun break that mystic. He is a botanist also who love natural things. That time, Patuha Mountain still become a jungle. The trees growth with local woods, like: rasamala, saninten, huru, samida, etc.
At first, Junghuhn didn't believe easily what the story told about. Junghuhn has found Kawah Putih deep inside the jungle in hard way. Finally he found a great place contains much sulfur. Might be that the reason, why the birds didn't want to fly over there. But the environment suround it, really great to see.
