Mt. Bromo & Mt. Semeru- Indonesia

Highest Mountain in Java, Indonesia!


FUN AT Mt. Bromo & Mt. Semeru- Indonesia

Trail Difficulty: 8/10

Adventure Duration: 5 day/s

Imagine: you are standing at the rim of a massive caldera, looking over a vast expanse of sand. In the middle lie seven craters, with Mt. Bromo, an active volcano puffing out wisps of white smoke into a quickly lightening sky. In the distance looms Mt. Semeru, the tallest mountain in Java, spewing out its own plume of ash. As the sunrise crests the eastern rim, the entire vista is suffused in a subtle golden light.

This magical scene awaits those who journey into Indonesia’s Tengger Massif, a volcanic complex born from hundreds of separate eruptions across several millennia. A trip up nearby Mt. Penanjakan on foot or via 4x4 jeep (or even horseback!) brings you the best vantage point to witness the Tengger Massif’s fearsome beauty. Then, you can travel across the “Sea of Sand” to Mt. Bromo and the burning heart of the caldera. After a visit to the Hindu temple at the foot of the
volcano, a short hike up brings you to the very edge of the sulfurous crater. 

This trip may not be as physically intensive as others, but a visit to this rugged landscape is sure to be an unforgettable experience.

Did you know?
Mt. Bromo is named after the Hindu god Brahma. The volcano is sacred to the local
Tenggerese people, who throw sacrifices of rice, fruit, and livestock into the crater
once a year.
