East Java Gunung Bromo & Ijen Crater Tour

Mount Bromo is an active volcano at 2329m that lies on a stretch of plains known as the Sea of Sand. Nestled inside the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park, located between the regencies of Malang and Lumajang. With rolling mists wrapped snugly around its foot, its dramatic setting is the source of many myths and legends. Climb to the summit in time to catch sun rise and gaze in wonder as the first beams of sun light up the incredible landscape beneath and beyond.

The stunning turqouise sulphur crater lake of Ijen is the other highlight of this tour. The magnificent lake is located 2148 meters above sea level and is surrounded by the volcano’s sheer crater walls. At the edge of the lake, smoke billows from the vent of the volcano and the water begins to bubble whenever the volcanic activity increases. Ijen is also the site of a labor intensive sulfur mining operation and sulphur workers climb the crater every day transporting the sulfur by hand.

To see the stunning lake, visitors are recommended to hike during the dry season between April and October. The 3 km hike is steep and will take around 1½ hours.  If we get up early and reach the peak for sunrise we’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views of the sun emerging over magnificently dramatic scenery.
