Along the path to the crater there would be many locals selling you small pouches of sulfur that they claimed can be a remedy for your skin problem. There are also locals selling your maskers as the sulfur odor around the crater is quite strong, so if you are not too keen with the strong odor, you might want to bring along a shawls or masker.

Not only popular as a tourist spot, the Kawah Putih is also a popular venue for prewedding shoots and film shooting, due to its beautiful white scenery.
