If you are lucky, there will be no fog and the Bromo sunset wil be amazing... However, even with the fog, on the way down, you will have magnificent viewpoints so we recommend it to you !!

Beware, try to visit this place during the afternoon. It might be less comfortable as it is hotter then just after sunrise, but we considered the huge amount of tourists climbing in the morning a big disadvantage. Nevertheless, the volcano is 'noble': it rises like an old, wise men in the moonlike scenery. I love its majesty. Even though, this... More

What a beautiful site. The experience is magnificent. First take in the view of the three volcanoes inside the caldera. Then take a jeep ride into the caldera itself. Its an easy walk to the steps leading to Bromo crater. Once on the crater the view is something special. Almost magical. Most people go to see the sunrise, however that... More

Catching the sunrise from Penanjakan was a wonderful experience. The sky was golden blue and the mountain was shadowed by mist. I also went to the savanna, the sand sea and the crater. I absolutely loved the savanna. Hiking to the crater was a bit of a challenge because of all the dust. Horses kept prancing back and forth and... More

This is a value for money destination with out of this world experience. Almost a moonscape at dawn and desertscape after the sunrise. The cowboys plying the routes on bike and ponies (at heartbreaking rates) are less invasive than touts elsewhere in the region. Try the lamb sate at the back of the truck at cemorolawang Y junction in front... More

I came to Mount Bromo from Malang, about 3 hours of trip in total (one way). I am a big fan of beach and sea view, but specifically Mount Bromo is a MUST SEE beauty. I usually doubted what I see in the picture, but my experience enjoying sunrise in Mount Bromo is such an exceptional experience, it's much more... More

After months of hard work, I finally able to jump on my car and headed to an airport to catch a plan to East Java to visit Mount Bromo. Visit Bromo means 1) Waiting for the sunrise over the volcano complex and enjoy the view from the above, at Mount Pananjakan. 2) Going down towards the volcano complex and climb... More

We travel 5 hours from Kawah Ijen to Mt Bromo, the road condition was not so good, and we need to wake up in the early morning to see the sun rise from Mount Penanjakan before heading to Mount Bromo, but it was really worth! The jeep pick us up from the lodge at 3.30am and heading to Mount Penanjakan... More
