Though it was amazing to see an active volcano, but it was just too touristy and commercialized. Be sure to keep your nose covered as your breathing may get affected by the volcanic sand

Our mountain bike group experienced one of the best cycling trails around Bromo. We also cycled on the Sea of Sand to do a full loop around the Volcano. The sunrise view from Penanjakan was spectacular with the mountain slowly emerging right in front of us with the gradual lighting-Magical! Do try to go over the other side of the... More

I saw the sunrise from Bukit Cinta which is a short hill because we were late and there weren't enough time to go yo Penanjakan 1 which is the most famous spot to see sunrise. Anyway, since the weather was nice, the view is incredible. It was really cold until about 8 AM and it becomes warmer and suddenly it... More

I have been to this place twice with different spot to see the sunrise. First is Panajakan 2 (lower ) and easier to reach spot. If you went with tour operator, they usually recommended this place to get easy access in and out due to time limit. it is suitable for people that want easy access or elders. if you... More

No doubt national park is beautiful. It is so strong to see what Mother Nature can do. To look into the crater hole was kind of mystic. Like looking to hell ;-) Same for huge field of black sand. Like you on different planet. BUT: this beatiful place is just big businees. Entrance fee for foreigners is bad joke (350.000... More

We started by catching the sunrise at a mountain beside Bromo, which was great. Took a jeep up to Bromo adventure-style, then be sure to get a horse to hike up the volcano as it would be a fun experience. However the place can get crowded during peak season, so do choose your dates wisely.

Part of me wants to give Mount Bromo a 1 star, and part of me wants to give it 4. To begin, we drove in the 4x4 jeep from our hotel at 3am up the hillside to view sunrise over Mount Bromo. The jeep dropped us off a short walk up a steep hill to the top. It was dark,... More

Had an adventurous ride up and had a Stunning view from the King kong hill. Had to be very early to reach the peak ie. 3am as lots of tourists will be there awaiting for the sunrise. Need to station at the most strategic location in order to capture the best sunrise photos and Mt Bromo. Temperature is freezing cold.... More
