This is the best viewpoint to watch sunrise at Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. Try to set off early at 3.00am in order to get away from the crowd.
Most people use a jeep to get them half way on to the mountain and carry on by taking a horse ride or by walking the rest of the distance. I trekked 6km from the starting point with a friend and a guide and reach the viewpoint after 1hour and 20 minutes.
There is a shelter at the viewpoint, however a lot of people will start streaming in nearer to the time of the sunrise. In order to get away from the crowd, there is a steep slope behind the shelter which you can scale up and have a better view. Do bring along a torch light and exercise caution as it might by a little dangerous.
