Overview

Situated in East Java, the twin mountains of Mt Arjuno and Mt Welirang are located in Tretes, about 50 kilometers South of Surabaya, and 20 kilometers North of Malang. The massive Arjuno Welirang mountain range is one of the finest hikes in East Java which offer 4 peaks over 3,000m from the active Welirang in the west to the long dormant Arjuna in the East. There’s a range of ecology, volcanology, and history to explore over a number of peaks and craters. 

Arjuno, whose name derives from the most flamboyant character from the Mahabarata, stands 3,339 meters above the sea level, Mt Arjuno is the second highest peak in East java, is also the highest point of the enormous Arjuno-Welirang mountain range. Arjuno is a dormant volcano, and the lower Welirang peak 3,156m- although shorter than the sister mountain, but considered more popular among hikers, due to the active crater with abundance Sulphur deposit and today   still mined by the local Sulphur’s miner.

Yes. You can request for the optional Milky Way tour which starts around midnight from your lodge at Cemoro Lawang. You will head to a nearby peak such as Mount Pananjakan, Mentigen Hill, Kingkong Hill or Seruni Point where you can view the Milky Way. Avid photographers should bring suitable camera equipment such as tripod for Milky Way Photography. You would then continue with the standard itinerary for sunrise views over Mt Bromo. The extra cost is 200K IDR for each jeep (4 customers to a jeep).

It cost around 75K IDR for one way trip to cross the sand sea on a horse. For a return trip, it will cost around 150K IDR. Note that the horse ride ends close to the start of the stairs to Mt Bromo crater. You will still have to climb the flight of steps up to the crater. Horse ride is entirely optional and you can also walk across the sand sea which most visitors do. Do negotiate with the horsemen to try to get a better deal.

No. Mount Bromo area is very dark and cold in the night. For the safety concern, we don’t allow the customers to hike solely on foot rather than taking the Jeep. 

Sunglasses and sunblock lotion are highly recommended – the sun rays can be harsh and at high altitude, it is easy to get sunburnt even though the surrounding temperature is cold. The terrain is very sandy– wearing a face mask is also recommended for protection. (Akin to walking in a desert). If you are visiting the waterfalls, please bring along wet gears (swim suits with t-shirt and shorts, booties/sandals, spectacle hooks, waterproof cover for camera which can be secured to your body, change of clothes, towel).

Our vehicle will drop you at the parking lot of Madakaripura Waterfalls where you will hop to a motorbike (Ojek) for a short 5 minutes ride to the entrance. Then you need to do a short trek of around 15 minutes (1km) to reach the waterfalls.

Swimming is no longer allowed at the waterfalls since 2018. But you will still get wet from the water. Our guides will provide ponchos for everybody. For footwear, we recommend covered rubber shoes like Crocs.  Sandals/slippers with good grips are also fine but please be careful not to hit any rocks.
