Sand Sea, Tengger Caldera

4.2
#11 of 126 in Nature in East Java
A protected nature reserve since 1919, Sand Sea represents a flat desert area made of volcanic ash and surrounding Mount Bromo, an active volcano. Visitors usually walk or rent an all-terrain vehicle to cross the desert and stop at the viewpoint on the volcano for photo ops. If you take a bike, be prepared for a struggle on the wind-blown sand. Try wriggling the handlebars to gain some traction. Thrill seekers can also ask their drivers about sandboarding, a way to ride a board pulled by a vehicle.

  • Sea of sand is so widely around the crater of Bromo. The temperature is quite cold and windy especially in the morning. But during the day, the weather is quite hot. But the broad sand scenery looks beautiful.

  • A place in the desert, with the cool air and cold, must bring a mask because if there's a horse or vehicle pass will be very ngebul

  • When entering the area of Mount bromo tour, visitors will be greeted with a vast expanse of sand. This sand will look beautiful when seen from the top of the Hill penanjakan to its location that surrounds mount bromo. Don't forget to bring a mask at the time of the dry season because of the many dust-dust soft sand that can disrupt travel.
