Mount Bromo really is a fascinating place. However, there are a few things we didn’t know when we visited, and which we could not find on any websites. We didn’t go for the sunrise tour, instead we went for a normal tour in the morning. We went during the festival time, unaware of it. Mount Bromo was very crowded and... More

Worth every second. We opted out of doing a tour and hiked up for an hour to the second observation point for sunrise. After we hiked back down, we had breakfast and then rode horses through the savanna to the crater. It was hard to breathe near the crater with all the smoke and fumes. For those wanting an extra...

Made a trip to Mount Bromo from Yogyakarta, which can be easily arranged with a tour agency together with a trip to Mount Ijen and transfer to Bali. But I would advise against booking a tour if: 1. You have plenty of time, because the timing for public transport change are not synced (so you might have to put a... More

The place was very nice, we saw the sunrise from the top and it was an amazing view. Pasir Berbisik is another place that we visited after seeing the sunrise and it was also a great place.

We first saw Mount Bromo from the plane as we flew from Bali to Java island. The cloud formations coming over the mountain tops are simply haunting, out of this world. There is definitely something unusual about the area which dazzles your senses and you are left in wonderment forever. There are several volcanoes along this area and their majesty... More

Seeing the night sky slowly changes colours and reveal the wonders of Bromo and surroundings is a priceless experience. Tip: get there by 3AM or earlier if you can. That way you can be at the very front of the outlook area and escape millions of camera and monostick taking pictures and blocking your view. I got there by 4... More

Did not sleep all night trip will be paid with the most amazing scenery, arriving in Pananjakan 2, see the sun rise, but outstanding, the scenery while sun rise on the mountain bowl. On southeast side thin clouds gathered and moved slowly as though cover the top of the mountain and the trail, just as a world of its own... More

stunning but overcrowd place, so much that loose big part of its magical atmosphere. So too many tourist, that I suggest to visit it in sunset and out of the local holiday period (during and after ramadan)
