Sand Sea, Tengger Caldera

4.2
#11 of 53 in Nature in East Java
Desert Nature / Park
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. Arrange to visit Sand Sea and other attractions in Tengger Caldera using our Tengger Caldera tour planner.
