  • We were picked up at 02.30h with one of the typical Toyota Landcruisers at the hotel (OYO SM Bromo). The journey through the dark night, over the serpentines and through the volcanic plateau was an experience. Arriving at the summit, after a small walk (don't forget flashlights or mobile phones) wait was announced. But since you are far from alone, the early arrival time is worthwhile to secure a good place. Even if it is still particularly cold in the morning and the cold slowly rises into your bones during the waiting time. It's totally worth it. It is already spectacular when the outlines of the surrounding mountains slowly emerge from the darkness of the night. And then when the sun rises and the Mt. Bromo is lit, it's just great. Then the cold is forgotten. Our daughter (8 years) found the waiting time (of course) doof, but was then totally enthusiastic and fascinated.

  • Well worth the experience of getting up early to see the sunrise and walking across the sands to climb up to view the active volcano. A great experience for the young and old. Mount Bromo can be an easy or hard a hike, rugged or as touristy as you want it to be. The view is spectacular, just get there early to secure a good spot. Also bundle up, it gets pretty cold at the top especially early in the morning. However, do wear layers as it gets quite warm when you're approaching the crater. The crater itself is crowded, and in my opinion, lacking a few safety measures. However, it's breathtaking and truly a cool place to see.
