Mt Bromo

A bit more of a relaxing day. After breakfast you’ll be taken by 4 wheel drive across the Tengger region and the Caldero of Mount Bromo before arriving at Cemorolawang for lunch and a freshen up at your hotel.

At the top you can see the crater lake below filled with steaming, acidic water. To observe the ‘blue fire’ a disclaimer must be signed first.

The crater lake is surrounded by sulphur mines. During the walk it’s highly likely you’ll encounter incredible local miners carrying loads of sulphur weighing up to 70kg down the mountainside. To understand their story more, the National Geographic have a fascinating article about them.
