Gunung Penanjakan, Tengger Caldera

4.4
#6 of 125 in Nature in East Java
Hike up Gunung Penanjakan and treat yourself to the spectacular views over Mount Bromo, Batok, and Semeru. Most organized trips start early in the morning in order to reach the viewing deck in time for the sunrise. Once you reach the peak, you can buy some light food and coffee while enjoying the chilly mountain air and encompassing panoramas. You might catch Mount Bruma, an active volcano, puffing away--creating some highly photogenic scenery. That said, the volcanic ash can make things quite dusty, so bring along something to cover your face with.

  • We set off at midnight with the hardtop in order to see the sunrise. We arrived at 4 a.m. in penanjakan 1, it was crowded. A full parking lot about 500 meters before penanjakan stairs 1. so we had to walk to reach the stairs. There are many taxi services but useless because the streets are jammed and faster walk. the first one we encountered a row of stalls and toilet that is widely unpopular because of the cold weather. Finally paid off also could see the sunrise at 5 is already bright. view from the top is very beautiful. a lot of that

  • We went to Java for the Bromo and the Ijen. In terms of the ascent of Mount Bromo, we recommend this view for the sunrise on the volcano. We reached this view necessarily 4 x 4 (all local work in the transport of tourists but better to book). Departure 3 hours in the morning (so expect a hotel on-site). Dress warmly, bring good shoes and be equipped with a front if your driver (and will be) don't go with you to the point of view. With a little luck (that we have not had) you will have a great sunrise over the Bromo. Then you can start the real tour of the Bromo in you working on his rise after a 20 minutes of 4 x 4 elder.

  • A pretty simple trek of around 2 hours will take you to a great viewpoint of Mt. Bromo and it's surroundings. Highly recommended to head there early to catch the sunrise  more »

  • Awesome sunrise! It was very crowded during holiday (especially eid holiday), so better visit on regular day to get the best spot
  • Packed with people who choose to take jeep tour up to mt.penanjakan for sunrise. Usually the jeep tour will go up to the penanjakan first before to the caldera of mt.bromo.
  • Good place to have a look sun rise
