One of the most visit place in indonesia..feel the mystical ambience, nice view. See the sun rises, enjoy the cold weather...dont forget to visit teletubies hill, pasir berbisik. Have a jeep ride, horse ride...and go to the crater of volcanoe.

Woke up at 12.30 am to get ready to leave the hotel at 2 am with our family with our 7 yr old granddaughter. This is to beat the heavy traffic and crowd as today is Christmas Evd and it is expected to be congested. True enough it was super packed. We had a brief breakfast at the warong before we ascend the hill to the plateform. Rented a mat and sat there waiting for the Sun to rise. It was chilly with the wind do bring along warm clothing if you plan to do the sane trip.. It was a majestic and fabulous view to watch the Sun rise starting from 5 am. As a bonus we also saw smoke spewing out of a distant volcanoe. As the day got brightened, it was a pcturesque view seeing the moutains with hanging clouds and mist. A well paid off and worthwhile effort.

Really amazing to view Mt Bromo and sunrise, the view was spectacular and i was in an awe. Woke up as early as 0100hrs and departed at 0200hrs, took 1 hour to penanjakan view point. It is very cold there, recommend to wear thick jacket and wind breaker, bring along torch light, and facemask to protect yourself from sand dust. Is a must to visit when travel to Surabaya.

Really amazing sunrise. White cloud with gradated golden sunrise.
Prepare warm jacket, gloves, and scarf as it is cold and windy up there. Or you can rent a jacket for IDR 10k, and buy glove and scarf at the same price.
Make sure to arrive there at 4am at the latest so you can get a parking place near the viewing area. While waiting for sunrise, I suggest to enjoy warm drink, instant noodle and local snack. The prepare your camera to take the best shot you ever had.
After sunrise, you can buy some souvenirs.

The best time to get on Penanjakan, which is one of the view point oversee Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park is at 4 AM in the morning as the dawn's approaching. There are 3 entry point from different cities to get to The National Park in General, but Malang is one of the most favorable choice. You will need to book a hardtop vehicle to get from the entry point to arrive at Penanjakan 1, and it took 1 hour of intensely rough tracks of rocks and sands. (It cost IDR 850 thousand, more or less for local tourist).
When you travel at weekends, the hardtop will need to stop around 500 m from the stairs of penanjakan. Some motorbike will offer you ride to the top for 20 thousand, sometimes they do it forcefully. You need to give a definite refusal to make them go away, but still politely.
When you arrived near the stairs to the view point, there would be many shacks where you can warm yourself with some coffee, instant noodle, or other local delicacies. After 5 more mins of light hiking through the stairs, as the sun rises, you will be welcomed by a majestic view of active volcanoes on your left hand side.

Notes: Bring small IDR notes (2 or 5 thousand) for using the toilets.

The view of mount bromo at sunrise was so amazing. Set out early so that you can reach at 3-330am to get a good spot to wait for sunrise.
Wear warm clothing cos it can get to 5 deg cel (or less with the wind).

A pretty simple trek of around 2 hours will take you to a great viewpoint of Mt. Bromo and it's surroundings. Highly recommended to head there early to catch the sunrise
