Gunung Penanjakan, Tengger Caldera

4.5
#6 of 126 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. See Gunung Penanjakan and all Tengger Caldera has to offer by arranging your trip with our Tengger Caldera online attractions planner .

  • A lot of refreshing activities can we do include a mountain ride is still active, so chilly cool. But for the second time, the atmosphere is more versatile, so all visitors are queued. The worse is when lining up in the toilet .... just imagine deh .... Reply to go to the popular tourist spot is good with experienced, so that conditions can be anticipated with gini kayak well. To a small mosque are also lining up. Must be patient and queued budayakan.

  • Sunrise hunters will be here in the very very morning. Hundreds of people are ready with their very own eyes and cameras waiting for the first light to come. When the sky is clear we can see thousands of stars in the dark sky slowly faded to the dawn. Then... Come the awe moment when the first light touches the misty land and erupting volcano. Feels like a gate of other dimension opens before your eyes.
  • sadly, if you get here parking your own car & must rent local Jeep. outsider car prohibited even 4wd
  • 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.
  • Wonderfull
