Reliving the Indonesia adventures with these articles. This episode is one of the most memorable, visiting the almighty Mount Bromo. I was looking forward to this and it was worth it even though it didn’t go perfectly with the view during sunrise. If you are traveling through Indonesia, this destination should be on your bucket list! I will show you our adventure here as a teaser. Enjoy!!

Sunrise at Mount Bromo
Wake up call at 2.30 am to hopefully see a beautiful sunrise at Mount Bromo. I say ‘hopefully’ because this wasn’t the case this time. There was a lot of fog that morning that blocked our view. It was so dark when we walked from the jeep to this location that I didn’t realize how much people there had been gathering until the sun came up (especially on the other side, you can see it in the video).
Although the view was a bit disappointing due to our luck, it was still worth the visit. Especially when the fog finally disappeared.
Tip: Wear a jacket, scarf and beanie for this sunrise, because it was about 8 degrees Celcius above the clouds, while waiting in the dark for quite some time.
Wow, it was like I landed on the moon. This landscape is something that I have never seen before. You can walk from the jeeps to the crater or you can rent a horse that can bring you with supervision. I was not fan of the horse ride, but this is how it works . We didn’t have much time either, so this was the faster way to get up there.
Again, up here it’s really something spectacular to witness. A smoking crater that is so huge you can’t capture it properly. We didn’t stay long, I think about 10 minutes, because the sulfur is pretty fierce on your lungs.
tip: Bring a mask or scarf to cover your mouth and nose against the dust and sulfur smell.
Lunch at Warung Kencur
Another yummy Indonesian lunch before our flight to Bali.
