How to Plan Your Visit to Mount Bromo

Posted By : admin/ 10 0

Bromo is a mountain near Malang, East Java, which becomes one of the city’s most popular tourist destinations. Mount Bromo is located in the northern part of the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park, where Mount Semeru, another famous mountain in the south and the highest mountain on the island of Java, also belongs to. Despite being an active volcano that has erupted at least four times since the beginning of this millennium, Mount Bromo is still considered an attractive destination due to the majestic scenery of the Sea of Sand that surrounds it. If you plan to visit Bromo, make sure that you plan your trip properly. Here are three important factors to mind if you want to make a plan to visit Mount Bromo.

 

 

 

 

1. The best time to visit

Dry season is the best time to visit Mount Bromo because of two reasons. First, wet road and hiking track will definitely limit your movement when you climb the mount, so rainy season is never a fun time to climb the mount. Second, although the beautiful scenery of the Sea of Sand can be viewed even during the rainy season, the unique scenery of the golden sunrise cannot be viewed from Mount Penanjakan viewpoint if the weather is bad. Climate change is rather erratic nowadays due to the effect of global warming, so you need to monitor weather forecast regularly to find out the right time to visit Bromo.

2. Transportation

There are two kinds of transportation that you choose from if you want to reach Mount Bromo and especially to enjoy the majestic Bromo sunrise. The more convenient one is using a jeep, which you can rent for about $100 per day including driver. If you decide to rent a jeep, the driver will pick you at your hotel at midnight so that you can enjoy Bromo’s golden sunrise at the right moment. The second option is using motorcycle, which is more budget-friendly to rent and you only need to spend about $10 (not including gas) to be able to use the motorcycle for a whole day visit to Bromo. But meantime, using motorcycle to reach Mount Penanjakan view point might not be the best decision regarding the road access upon hills.

3. Accommodation

Accommodation is an important matter, especially if you want to reach Mount Bromo in the morning. You need a comfortable place to rest for the night before you enjoy the sunrise. There are a number of factors that dictate the best accommodation for you. The first is transportation. If you decide to use a jeep, you can stay in any hotels in Malang before the driver picks you up at midnight. If you decide to use a motorcycle, it will be better if you choose a hotel near Mount Bromo so that you don’t have to take on too long journey. The second is budget. Backpackers definitely prefer staying at a cheap hotel. In Malang, hotels with room starting from $6 per night are many, so it should not be difficult for you to find a budget-friendly hotel.

Posted By : admin/ 4 0

If at one point in life you ever wondered about how the earth initially looked like long before the humankind’s settlement and could only imagine it in your head, visiting Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park would probably make you think “this is it, this is what it probably looked like at the time.” The miles upon miles of sea of sand, barren landscape which almost looks like it’s of the outer-world, the canyons – everything is exactly how you imagined it. Mount Bromo is truly one of a kind, it is perhaps the only main tourist attraction that always delivers regardless of the weather condition. Tourists who visit when the weather is crisp and clear are treated with a magnificent views of the surrounding, but those who visit when it’s cloudy will not be left disappointed as the surrounding instantly becomes even more surreal – magnifies its majestic atmosphere. Keep reading to find all that you need to know about Mount Bromo and why it’s one place you must visit when you are in East Java.

There is simply no greater adventure

Rising from the Tengger caldera at about 2,392 meters, Mount Bromo, emerged from a massive crater and surrounded by magnificent cliffs of the edge of the craters, stands proudly in the sea of volcanic sand and ashed. Mount Bromo is widely popular for its incredible barren lunarlike-landscape that you cannot find somewhere else – as though to add more into the already breathtaking sights, to the south of Mount Bromo, there stands the highest peak of Java which coincidentally also the most active volcano in the island, Mount Semeru. Towering at 3,676 meters, Mount Semeru’s incredible beauty in the background will most likely make your jaw drop as it dramatically coughs up its ashes all over the scene.

Mount Bromo may be a destination that tops the list of many hikers, but that does not necessarily mean BromoTripis off-limit to those who have never even thought about hiking once in their lives. Hiking Mount Bromo is not at all difficult as the trail is easy and it doesn’t take too much time and energy, but if you’re still too tired from your journey the day before, you can easily rent a scooter, a jeep or even ride a horse – which makes for an iconic photograph once you get there. A little tip, get up early and reach the top to witness the Bromo Sunrise, you’re guaranteed to be awestruck!

How to get to the National Park

Many independent and budget travellers typically get to Bromo from Probolinggo as it is the most mentioned and published option in media; and the fact that going to Cemorolawang from Probolinggo will provide visitors with closer look of Mount Bromo. Travellers taking this route generally get on a 1,5-2 hours drive to Cemoro Lawang. Tho visitors must be very aware that Probolinggo route always lead all visitors to scammers . However, you may also visit Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park from Malang city, although your best bet is to sign up for a sharing tour group with all inclusive facilities with jeep ride and services; as public transport is irregular and being in a tour group means you already have everything set up.
