Mount Bromo is an active volcano and part of the Tengger Massif, in East Java, Indonesia. At 7,641 feet, Bromo is not the highest peak in the range, but it is the best known of them all. The massif area is one of the most-visited attractions in East Java. The volcano belongs to Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. The name derives from Javanese pronunciation of Brahma, the Hindu creator god. Once a year the local people climb Mount Bromo for the Kasada ritual—a celebration of ancestor worship. Mount Bromo sits in the middle of a vast plain called the Sea of Sand—a protected nature reserve since 1919.
You will visit Mount Bromo the way the locals do, accessing the nearby mountain village of Cemoro Lawang by coach; then continue to Mount Bromo by four-wheel-drive vehicle. Mount Bromo stands in a sea of ashen, volcanic sand, surrounded by the towering cliff of the crater’s edge. The immense size of the crater and the supernatural beauty of the surrounding scenery are really very special indeed. Re-board your 4x4 vehicle for the drive back to Cemoro Lawang village. An Indonesian buffet lunch is served here at a local restaurant. After lunch, you will drive back to Probolinggo port and to the ship.
Have your camera ready—the fascinating landscape of gravel plains and sea of pulverized, volcanic sand is picture perfect.
Enjoy a light refreshment at the town of Cemoro Lawang before a well-deserved Indonesian buffet at a local restaurant.
