It would be a great adventure if we visit on dry season (June onward). However, the adventure I had was so great. I suggest to ride a horse (rent IDR 150k return) from parking place to the caldera foot to conserve the energy for hiking-up...More

There are very beautiful view points from where you can see the milky way and the bromo and batok craters, however, the climb up the 240 steps to the Bromo summit is not worth it. You can't see anything into the crater and the sulfur...More

Hi... If you want to go to the summit, take about 45 minutes with a Jeep, and then walk for about 20 minutes, see the point of panorama on Penanjakan. Getting sunrice depends on the weather or foggy.

If I dont book a tour in advance for mount Bromo can we just find a tour there in the streets of Malang, and arrange everything on the spot?

Mount Bromo & Luggage Storage at Surabaya Airport (3 Replies)
I have a few questions. I'm thinking of going to Mount Bromo next month, a quick trip and in out from surabaya. 1) Will the Feb monsoon affect the trip? 2) Is there any place to store luggage in Surabaya airport? I dont want to take all my luggage to Bromo and it will probaby be a better idea to store it somewhere. 3) I have a 5pm flight out of Surabaya after the visitto bromo, I should leave there by what time? 10am?

Hi, even though February is not the best time to visit Bromo, if you're lucky enough you'll get a wonderful view there, as The Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park is -from my experience- visitable all year round. I'm pretty sure there is a luggage storage in the Surabaya airport, I think you need to go to the right side after you are out from the arrival hall. It takes approximately 3 hours by private or rented car to get to Surabaya airport from Bromo. But public transport will take...More

Five women headed to Indonesia in July for wildlife (including birds), nature, and culture. 19 days or so planned. Presently planning to start in Indonesian Borneo, a stop in Jave to see Jogjakarta and Mount Bromo, a trip to Sulawesi to see villages of Toraja, and some time in Bali (Ubud). This seems pretty strong on culture and nature, less so on wildlife. Thinking about either adding a trip to see the Komodo dragons or adding some time in Tangkoko Nature Reserve. Anyone have any thoughts...More

Hi Judy: I can't comment on the wildlife part, but I do think you are trying to see too many places in one short trip. Travel in Indonesia can be time consuming and tiring, and you have already mentioned 5 different places..(remember Jogja and Bromo are far apart so count these as two locations.) Sulawesi is of my very favorite places in Indonesia but the drive up from Makassaar to Rantepao is about 9 hours so two of those days are taken up just in transit, although the drive is...More
