I have been there twice, every time I saw something new. I always combined the trip with IJEN. RULE #1 True is Bromo is well known and therefore it is a good idea to avoid visiting it during Indonesian national holidays. There is not much hiking; it is like 30mins up and 30 mins down. If you are tired even... More

Okay - the view from the village is nice. The sunrise view is also nice... of course if clouds allow you to see sunrise at all. But the rest of the experience is much overrated and definitely not comparable to other volcanos in java. If you hoped for privacy - you will need to excuse yourself with hundreds or thousands...

We left Bromo Cottage 3:30 and arrived at the end of a very long row of jeeps at the sunrise viewpoint. We had to walk about 1 km through the 2 rows of jeeps , many of them with motor still turning. What made the walk really bad were dozens if not hundreds of motorcycles proposing shuttle service. The whole... More

All the tours operate at the same time to give you a view over Bromo at sunrise: all good in theory but is disappointing in practice. While you can't deny the spectacle of sunrise over mountains (or volcanoes) this one wasn't the most awe-inspiring. Add to that the (literally) hundreds of people jostling for position and the now expensive entrance... More

Climbing the Bromo Volcano was a nice experience. We started very early in the morning, when it was still dark and misty. During this time the whole valley is covered in a thick mist and you can't see the volcano. A couple of Indonesian people on motorbikes or by foot will try to convince you to take them as your...

Everything about this place is very special, the mystical experience, the people, the unique culture and the views are so spiritually breathtaking. For this trip i really want to make sure that my wife and I can enjoy the full bromo experience so we opt to book our private jeep there so we explore the areas at our own pace... More

Mount Bromo is really amazing place in Indonesia. If you are there, go to the sea of sand, and just walk to nowhere. It is worth to spend there hours. One advise: if possible, spend night down in Probolinggo and the next day go visit Bromo. Dont stay in the village near Bromo. The people there are most unfriendly people... More

There are 3 entry points to visit Mt. Bromo, but only town of Cemoro Lawang is located at the rim of Mt. Tengger (the container of Mt. Bromo and Mt. Batok). Since the trip to Bromo is a production, I decided to stay in Cemoro Lawang to make my trip more relaxing. From Cemoro Lawang, you can also hike to... More
