4.4/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web
Head up Mount Bromo to admire this active volcano, which sits amidst a mountainous landscape. Located in a national park, the volcano stands at 2,329 m (7,641 ft); although not the highest peak in the park, it is certainly the most famous and popular. Consider taking a tour to this remote location, or hire a vehicle to explore the scenery yourself. Stand on top of Mount Penanjakan and watch the sunrise over Mount Bromo to catch one of the most sought-after and photographed sights the region has to offer.

  • No trip to the East Java is complete without paying a visit to Mount Bromo. Staring at this strange yet amazing landscape left a profound experience for me that will linger for long, it is just so fas...  read more »
  • I must say the truth: the landscape and natural beauty this complex of volcanoes is really strong. The expanse of sand/ash that surrounds it, with the dawn's reflection looks like a sea. The most impressive part is the voice of the powerful volcano and remains inside. It is also true that at dawn there is the best scenery. It's fresh, it's not the cold of our mountains. Then, there are tourists, many Indonesians who travel and love this place. Let's say the hordes of tourists who arrive in Venice can be the comparison guessed as much people. The thing I regret is that being natural park maybe should be better regulated by the Indonesian Government. To preserve it, not destroy it.

  • If you go there will probably be on an organized tour activity. 1. They drive you from the hotel in Cemoro Lawan ... this costs 350.000 IDR for a jeep like car that drives you to the bottom of the mou...  read more »
  • very nice place to visit if you like nature. My advice, dont visit during public holidays in Indonesia, the place is very crowded. Sunrise is the best attraction in mount Bromo, you need to start riding a 4x4 Jeep very early in the morning (2:00am) to secure a place in the viewing deck. We rented a villa in the down town for a night and booked our ride up to the viewing deck.
  • Nice view of the rising sun and the crater. Good place to visit
  • This is a magical location. Very cold at night. Get up before dawn and make the trek over the sea of sand for a dark ascent up the many stairs. Be cautious - no safety rails at the top, and steep drops on each side. But the moment the sun comes over the horizon, it is just wonderful.
  • Amazing scenery and great open view of the sand sea, especially in the morning. Though full of various transports, to get to the top of mount bromo, and also great to visit when foggy, to look out for atmospheric optics.
  • Nice national park crowded by several wild species of 4WD (mostly Toyota and Daihatsu) as well as motorbikes (Honda and Yamaha). When we visited the park there were about 400 jeeps packed with tourists and as many motorbikes. One can do the same by foot but seems not to be an attractive option for many which makes it unpleasant for the ones who do it (super loud and polluting vehicles everywhere). From the border of the park to the sunrise viewing point it takes about 2h walking through the crater (pro tip: take a torch since no light before 5:00am), Bromo and the temple are half way so about 45 min. The way to the viewing point is pretty steep when you start going up (concrete road) but as soon as the road turns to asphalt it's not that bad. In any case taking a jeep is not necessary.
