Because of the weekend our tour agent advised us to go very early in the morning to see the sunrise. So we were the first to arrive around 2(!). Around 4 o'clock the place was packed. Sunrise was very beautiful to see and the view on the bromo and other vulcanos is awesome. You can rent a jacket from the... More

Although tiring and hard to reach, Mount Bromo is totally worth the visit! We started the trip from Surabaya, where, to save us some time, we decided to rent a private car with driver for 2 days (we paid about 230€ in total, quite expensive considering Indonesian's prices but definitely worth). It takes about 2-3 hours to reach Mount Bromo... More

I travelled to Bromo by public transportation. When arriving in Probolinggo we have to catch a bemo to go to Camara Lawang, the village nearby the Bromo. we pay only 20,000+15,000 for the bus and bemo. When arriving in the top village we have to look for cheap homestay with hot water. The wether there is around 12-15 C. We... More

We arrived around 6pm in the train station and found easily an affordable hotel, even dough all hotels on the internet were sold out or to expensive). Tip: gather your information from the internet before you go. It's the easiest way to avoid being scammed. In the morning we left at 7am to catch a minivan to the probolinggo bus... More

Bromo is the only place on earth where you can see two mountains erupt at the same time. Mount bromo and mount semeru. Its sceneries are among the bests on earth. So dramatic and uncomparable

インドネシアの独立記念日の前夜に急に行くことになり、喜んで行ってきました。夜10時発で山の途中まではドライバー付きレンタカーと行き、そこからはジープに乗ってブロモ山の近くにある山のてっぺんまで行きます。日の出の約1時間前からヒトが続々と現れ、日の出のちょい前から国歌を歌い始めるインドネシア人。日の出は素晴らしく、帰りはブロモ山に寄って噴火口を見に行けました。黙々と煙が上がっていて、迫力あり。見に行く価値は絶対ある! Wonderful place to visit! Sunrise and Bromo volcano tour was the best tour I took so far in Indonesia.

What an experience! Did this as an independent tour with Yoshi Tours, rather than with shore excursion from cruise. Not convinced that Yoshi Tours handled our group of 32 as organised as they could of, but they did their best and it paid off for us. Yes, it is about 1 hour via mini van, then change over point at... More

I went on this day tour arranged from a cruise ship. It took an hour on the bus and then another forty five minutes in the jeep to reach Bromo. If you suffer from motion sickness, vertigo or back problems I would not take this trip. The road is very windy and narrow and very very bumpy. In saying this... More
