- A dream panorama: the sunrise on the Bromo, Semeru and Batok volcanoes
- The sea of ashes and its lunar landscapes
- The impressive Kawah Ijen crater and the sulfur carriers
Mount Bromo (2,329 meters) can easily be recognized as the entire top has been blown off and the crater inside constantly belches white sulfurous smoke.
It sits inside the massive Tengger caldera (diameter approximately 10 km), surrounded by the Laut Pasir (Sea of Sand) of fine volcanic sand. The overall effect is unsettlingly unearthly, especially when compared to the lush green valleys all around the caldera.
Day 1: Arrival Surabaya – Bromo
Arrive at Juanda International airport Surabaya. Meet and greet by your guide, then take the 4-5 hour drive to Tosari Village or Pasuruan Village with some possible stop along the way.
Check in and the rest of the day is at your own leisure.
Day 2: Mt Bromo sunrise – Banyuwangi
Very early morning depart to Penanjakan, witnessing the beautiful sun rise (if weather permit).
Then the trip continues to cross the sand-sea to reach the foot of the mount Bromo as the starting point to climb up the stair to the crater.
The spectacular view of the range of volcanoes (Bromo, Batok and Semeru) is unveiled along with the rise of the morning sun.
The Bromo Tengger National Park is a popular getaway destination for local tourists, so the platform on the peak of Mt. Penanjakan can be very busy during weekends and public holidays.
Finally, we will drive you back to the hotel for refreshment and then continue driving to your hotel in Banyuwangi.
Lunch will be served at local restaurant.
Arrive at the hotel and the rest of the day will be free at leisure.
Day 3: Ijen tour – Bali
After an early wake-up call and breakfast, a four-wheel drive vehicle carries you through the rural villages, coffee and clove plantations and then into one of Java’s last rainforest's.
Humidity, wildlife, giant ferns and big trees cover the slope of the mountain.
Arrive at the Park Ranger’s post to begin the 90 minutes hike to the rim of Ijen Crater.
The stunning view is unveiled at 2883 meters altitude. The lake offers eerie colors and smoke wafting from bright yellow sulfur deposits which create a spectacular landscape.
Watching miners descending into the crater and finding them re-emerge carrying up to 80 kilos of ore on bamboo baskets along the treacherous path is a breathtaking reality.
Afterwards, we walk down the mountain and return to the hotel.
Arrive at the hotel for refreshment we then directly continue the trip to Ketapang harbor to catch the public ferry to Bali.
Arrival at Gilimanuk, Bali harbor, we proceed to your hotel in Bali.
