This is the most popular itinerary among the customers. However, if you want to add, change or skip some attractions, we can customise itinerary for you. All the attractions and activities are optional, you can always skip if you don’t want to go. You can leave a note when you check out or tell our guide in the tour.

The entrance fees have various pricing i.e. foreigner, local rate, peak prices etc. It would be better that the customer pay on the spot depending on his/her nationality. Also, it will solve the refund issue if you choose not to go to the attraction when you are on the tour.

Return airport transfer service is included. We would pick you up at Surabaya airport on your arrival time on day 1. If you are already in Surabaya, we would pick you up at your hotel at around 9am instead. 

The nearest international airport to Mount Bromo is Surabaya Juanda International Airport.

You can also start the tour from Bali or Yogyakarta.

Generally, our tours are all inclusive except for Entrance fee/s and meals (lunch & dinner) during the tour.

For lunch and dinner expenses, you can budget it at around 50,000 rupiah/meal or about 5SGD/meal or 4USD/meal. It greatly depends on what you order and where you dine.

As for the entrance fees, we usually state in the tour details or you can pay through us first as a selected option.

Yes. Kindly chat with us for the best date to see the Milky Way.  You will be picked up around 10pm instead of 2:30am. 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 SGD50/pax.

It cost around 100K IDR for one way trip to cross the sand sea on a horse. For a return trip, it will cost around 200K 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 – 10 minutes ride to the entrance. Then you need to do a short trek of around 30 – 45 minutes to reach the waterfalls.

Swimming is no longer allowed at the waterfalls since 2018. But you will still get wet from the water. 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.

To fully enjoy the majestic beauty of Mount Bromo, one of Indonesia’s most famous volcanoes, it is recommended to embark on a guided tour. Most Mount Bromo tours start early in the morning, allowing you to witness the stunning sunrise from King Kong Hill or other popular viewpoints. You can reach Mount Bromo by driving to Cemoro Lawang, the nearest village, and then either hike Mount Bromo or ride a jeep across the Sea of Sand to the crater rim.

The hike is moderately challenging, so wear comfortable hiking shoes. Besides the volcanic scenery, Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park offers breathtaking landscapes and opportunities to visit nearby attractions like Madakaripura Waterfall. For a comprehensive experience, consider a tour package that also includes a visit to Mount Ijen, another spectacular volcano in the area.

Hiking Mount Bromo is an exhilarating experience but requires some preparation. First, note that the best time to visit is during the dry season, as the paths are safer and the views less obstructed by clouds. Starting your hike early in the morning is advisable to enjoy the sunrise from the summit or viewpoints like King Kong Hill.

Although Bromo is an active volcano, it’s generally safe for tourists with established paths and safety railings at the crater rim. The hike is relatively easy, but the high altitude and uneven terrain can be challenging, so ensure you’re physically prepared. Wear sturdy hiking shoes and bring layers, as temperatures can vary dramatically. Lastly, consider the environmental conditions – volcanic activity can change, so always check for updates before your visit and follow safety guidelines provided by your tour guide or local authorities.

Mt Bromo Volcano. Part of the Tengger massif in East Java, renowned for its stunning lunar-like landscape and active volcanic status.

Sea of Sand. A unique feature of Mt Bromo, this vast ash-laden area surrounds the volcano.

Sunrise Transformation. The scenery transforms dramatically when the sun rises, offering a surreal and breathtaking view. The King Kong Hill viewpoint is highly recommended for this spectacle, providing a panoramic view of the volcano and its surroundings.

Smoke from the Crater. Signifying Mt Bromo’s active volcano status, smoke coming from the crater is a notable feature. Visitors can trek to the crater rim, which is equipped with safety railings for protection.

Edge of an Active Volcano. Standing at the edge of Mt Bromo’s active volcano offers an exhilarating and humbling experience.

Comprehensive Experience. Day tours or shared tours, arranged by a travel agent, often include visits to Mount Argopuro and other active volcanoes on Java Island. These tours usually begin early morning to reach the sunrise points at the best time.

Mt Bromo is quite accessible to tourists, with various options available for a day trip. Visitors can use Google Maps to navigate to Cemoro Lawang, the nearest village to Mt Bromo, which serves as a starting point for many treks and tours. From there, the journey to the volcano can be undertaken on foot or by jeep.

Day tours to Mt Bromo typically include an early morning start to catch the iconic sunrise over the volcano. This sunrise adventure is a must-see, with popular viewpoints such as the King Kong Hill viewpoint offering spectacular vistas of the sunrise.

For those looking to explore further, travel agents offer packages that include visits to other attractions in the area, like the nearby Mount Argopuro. It’s important to note that during the wet season, some paths may be less accessible, so it’s advisable to plan accordingly.

Direct flights to nearby cities and good road connectivity make Mt Bromo a convenient destination for both domestic and international travelers, making it an ideal location for a memorable day trip.

Essential Tips and Highlights for Visiting Bromo: Best Viewpoints

The King Kong Hill viewpoints and the Bromo viewpoint are must-visits for panoramic views. These spots are ideal for watching the sunrise and taking in the vast landscape of the Tengger Caldera.

Safety Measures. While exploring, especially near the crater, pay attention to safety railings and follow all safety guidelines. The terrain can be unpredictable due to volcanic activity.

Sunrise Magic. Make sure to reach a sunrise point early to catch the breathtaking sunrise. The view as the sun rises over the caldera is a highlight of any visit to Bromo.

Altitude Awareness. Remember, Bromo is high above sea level, so be prepared for cooler temperatures and thinner air. Dress in layers and stay hydrated.

Exploring Beyond Bromo. Don’t miss out on other volcanoes in the area. Each offers unique landscapes and hiking experiences.

Reaching the Highest Points. For those seeking adventure, try to reach the highest peak or highest viewpoint in the area for an unparalleled view of the volcanic landscape.

Remembering Gunung Bromo. Gunung Bromo, as it’s locally known, is not just a natural wonder but also a cultural icon. Respect the local customs and the natural environment during your visit.
