  • I went to Bromo last December with my family (parents, siblings, cousins). We are kind of anti-mainstream that we didn't choose to do the midnight-early morning tour like other people usually do. We.....  more »
  • Clearly the best memory that i have from Java Indonesia. This is an unique place and shouldn't think twice about going there, it's totally worth it. The place is huge, there is many things to explore....  more »
  • We did our Bromo adventure by a private tour agency that picked us up at the hotel and droped us there also. It was an amazing adventure. We did that all with our 2 year old daughter. She slept in...  more »

  • Well worth the experience of getting up early to see the sunrise and walking across the sands to climb up to view the active volcano. A great experience for the young and old. Mount Bromo can be an easy or hard a hike, rugged or as touristy as you want it to be. The view is spectacular, just get there early to secure a good spot. Also bundle up, it gets pretty cold at the top especially early in the morning. However, do wear layers as it gets quite warm when you're approaching the crater. The crater itself is crowded, and in my opinion, lacking a few safety measures. However, it's breathtaking and truly a cool place to see.

  • I was here in 1994. I remember waking up at midnight and getting driven three hours out of Surabaya. Then we rode a donkey from the very edge of the crater, and climbed up the mountain to see the fiery crater and the sunrise over the mountains. It was unbelievable, but the coldest I've ever been - until the sun came up! A once in a lifetime opportunity.
  • Beautiful nature..very cold during dawn.. but no so much after sunrise.. please do not ride the horse unless you are as light as child.. horses are small and most are not treated well.. cant blame the locals as they are also not properly trained on how to treat those animals. You have to walk about 1.5km on a desert-like field then a climb on hill about 1km then hike stairs of about 250 steps.. need quite a stamina and please do so before day getting hotter..
  • Exceptional hike to roaring volcano across big desert of vulcanic sand. We hiked around 4pm when it wasn't crowded. Experience of a lifetime and definitely thing to consider while visiting Indonesia. There are cars and motorcycles that can drop off you near but walking to there, on it and from there while it's not crowded is definitely amazing experience.
