No idea why this isn't promoted more for Java as it is a must whilst in the area! Tip: when you walk through the gate you're going to be charged $30 per person. However, if you take a right up the road (facing Mt Bromo from the village, past warung pondok tender, opposite side to cafe lava) follow the road... More

The place is truly enchanting but Don't go during rains as there is a thick fog all the time and you miss out on the view.

Yes, everything that the people say in the 5 star reviews. We did the "Free Bromo" Tour by taking our hired car as close as possible to King Kong Hill for mid morning view (past Ceres Indah Hotel). We had to walk 45 min up to some spectacular vistas. We were surprised to encounter anyone ... just two others who... More

If you another feel you've gained a lot for a little effort then Bromo is your answer. Easy little hike for amazing views. The terrain is beautiful and something quite different. You won't forget it or regret it!

The place is amazing from every location and during every condition. With clear weather you get amazing views, but with clouds everything becomes surreal. Especially the sandsea gets a madmax/tatooine feel when it becomes gray and dusty. The sides of the volcano rim are cracked creating martian outer-world landscapes. Do take a walk through some of the bigger canyons if... More

I guess for backpackers the easiest and cheapest way to visit Mt.Bromo is from Cemoro Lawang. We first drove to Probolinggo, from the bus station(actually those buses are in front of the station) find a bus that is going to Cemoro Lawang(1,5 hour drive). The bus only leaves when full, so find some other backpackers or bus where there are... More

Mt. Bromo is located in/part of the larger Tengger Caldera. The spectacular view from the hills above the Tenggerese (Hindu) community of Cemoro Lawang of Mt. Bromo, Mt. Batok (a beautiful inactive cone shape volcano located close by, and, to the South, of Mt. Semeru (tallest volcano in Java and regularly active) are the stuff of photographers' and adventure travelers'... More

Da Nang, Vietnam

Hi, need some serious guidance!

General:

1)Is it possible to do the viewpoints and bromo summit early in the morning (via truck through a guesthouse, but not a tour) and make it back to Ubung by at least 19:00 as we have a domestic flight from Depansar at 21:00?

Specific:

a)I'm sure it depends, but when are trucks normally back at Cewara Lewang's hotels?

b) What would be the earliest we could be back in Probolingo? Aalthough we initially planned to take the slow public bus, I guess we'd now need to take something more efficient as we're pressed by time; is there a slightly faster option which won't bankrupt us (sharing a taxi with other travelers for example...is that feasible?) How long would that take, an hour?

c) What will the fastest way be back to Ubung? The train or an actual direct executive bus? I've heard the journey via...train or bus is about 9 to 10 hours to Ubung. The train at 11:00 is therefore too late for us. Is there an earlier one? And the bus departure times? We know about the schemes taking place at Probolingo. Anyway what would be the best way? If transport via bus or train is impossible, then a private car would be the last resort, however, the price may most likely scare us off.

Do you reckon we'd back at Ubung at 19:00? We'll take a taxi to the airport if need be. It is 21:00 domestic flight though We understand that we would be tired, but we planned a long time for visiting this volcano, but Bali's Nyepi holiday and its travel restrictions destroyed our plans, and it's difficult to let go what the heart is set on. Could we do it? How?

Thanks in advance!
