Gunung Penanjakan, Tengger Caldera

#6 of 95 in Nature in East Java
Must see · Mountain · Lookout
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. Put Gunung Penanjakan and other Tengger Caldera attractions into our Tengger Caldera online attractions planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • The experience is just breathtaking. After 2 years living in Indonesia we finally went with the company. Interesting fact is that most of the local people had never been there before. Honestly I do not see (after Yogja) à better place to visit. Hard to get there but at 5 Am you forget everything and just enjoy
  • Sunrise can look very beautiful although it often gets way to crowded to enjoy it properly. It takes about an hour to get there, out there is very dusty and cold during sunrise so make sure that you are dressed well. Soon after the sunrise most people are going to Mount Bromo and that's probably the best time to enjoy the view and make some nice photos. The further up you go the better view you'll get and even at the highest point you'll be able to buy some warm drinks and snacks. So go there, enjoy the view and if you are planning to climb Bromo afterwards you can do it in the afternoon when it's not crowded and especially before sunset if you want to make some nice photos there.
