On the return journey from Tangkuban Prahu to Bandung you’ll pass through Lembang, where you can change on to a minibus for the resort of Maribaya. There are waterfalls near the entrance gate and hot springs, which have been tapped into a public pool. Further down is the largest waterfall, which you have to pay extra to see. An ugly iron bridge has been built right across the lip of the falls, and this is the starting point for a wonderful walk down to the Dago Teahouse on the edge of Bandung. The path winds downhill through a gorge and forests – just before the teahouse are tunnels used by the Japanese in World War II and the Dago waterfall, which lies among bamboo thickets. At the end of the walk is the teahouse, with private tables under their own thatched roofs and superb views over Bandung city. From here, plenty of minibuses head back into the centre of town.
