Bali Holiday Journey to Java volcano

Tour duration: 2 days, 1 night
Min pax required: 2

Embark with us on a fascinating land tour to one of East Java’s biggest attractions – Gunung Bromo.

The mighty mount Bromo is definitely spectacular, however, it's not only the mountain itself, but the sheer majesty of the experience. The immense size of the entire Tengger crater, the supernatural beauty of the scenery and the dramatic highland light really are many travelers’ dreams come true.

Sunrise is the best time for a visit. This is when the great crater is at its ethereal best and colors are most impressive. But visibility is usually good throughout the day in the dry season too, even though the slopes below Cemoro Lawang may be covered in mist. 


For this tour, we will leave from the hotel early in the morning by car and head towards Gilimanuk harbor in West Bali. We might stop along the way for short breaks, photos and refreshments. We expect to arrive in the local hotel in Java in the early evening and you will have free time to explore the area.


Don’t stay up too late, since the next morning we will wake up before 4.00 AM so that we make it in time to witness the sunrise from Mt. Bromo. While waiting for the sun to come up, you can enjoy local coffee and freshly fried banana at a local stall. But have your camera ready since the scenery and atmosphere will certainly be worth more than one picture.

After we’ve breathed all the beauty in, we will go back to the car and continue to Bromo crater. In the way there, we will cross Laotian Pasir which means sea of sand. To reach the crater, you will either have to hike up, or you may rent a horse. After ascending the 253 steps you’ll come face to face with the steaming, sulphurous guts of the Java Bromo volcano. There are sweeping views back across the Laotian Pasir to the lip of the crater and over to Batok and the Hindu temple (which only opens on auspicious days in the pilgrim calendar) at its base.

After we have had enough of exploring, we will head back to the hotel for breakfast and a shower.

Refreshed and rested we will go see Makadipura waterfall before starting our way back to Bali. You also have the option to be dropped off to Surabaya city, if you continue by plane. In that case we recommend booking a flight departing after 5-6 PM.
