Mount Bromo, East Java, Indonesia

I love my country, Indonesia, no matter what they said. Still many things to be grateful for from Indonesia. One of them is Mount Bromo. You will find such a breathtaking scenery. How great is He who created these mountains. 

I went there in a customize-trip arranged by UNIX Tour for me. There are many ways to get there, backpacking, drive by yourself, or like me – take a low-budget tour. The reason is because I’m not brave enough to drive in the middle of the night in a mountain road, for the first time visiting Bromo. And I was taking my cousin from Hongkong who was so curious about Bromo. For detail information about Bromo, you can find it from many websites. But this the review from wikipedia. 

Mount Bromo (IndonesianGunung Bromo), is an active volcano and part of the Tengger massif, in East JavaIndonesia. At 2,329 metres (7,641 ft) it is not the highest peak of the massif, but is the most well known. The massif area is one of the most visited tourist attractions in East JavaIndonesia. The volcano belongs to the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. The name of Bromo derived fromJavanese pronunciation of Brahma, the Hindu creator god.

Mount Bromo sits in the middle of a vast plain called the “Sea of Sand” (Javanese: Segara Wedi or IndonesianLautan Pasir), a protected nature reserve since 1919. The typical way to visit Mount Bromo is from the nearby mountain village of Cemoro Lawang. From there it is possible to walk to the volcano in about 45 minutes, but it is also possible to take an organised jeep tour, which includes a stop at the viewpoint on Mount Penanjakan (2,770 m or 9,088 ft) (IndonesianGunung Penanjakan). The best views from Mount Bromo to the Sand Sea below and the surrounding volcanoes are at sunrise. The viewpoint on Mount Penanjakan can also be reached on foot in about two hours. From inside the calderasulfur is collected by workers.

There are many many many websites posted photos about Bromo. Since, I have been there and this is my blog, so why not post some of my shoots here? Well, don’t just see the photos, but go there and have your own photos! Just check the best time to go to Bromo. If you’re Indonesian and never been to Bromo but always go abroad, ask yourself, do you love Indonesia? Because many foreign people are the big fans of Bromo and how bout you?🙂
