Kingkong hill is the most famous sunrise point where you can see the Cemara Lawang Village, Mount Bromo, Mount Batok, and Mount Semeru from one point of view. After enjoying the sunrise here, you will be escorted back to the jeep and then drive to the sea of sand for hiking the peak of Mount Bromo. We will be stopping by in the sea of sand to enjoy the view from the bottom and take a photo with an iconic jeep in Mount Bromo. Afterward, we will drive for 5 minutes to reach the start point of the trekking, the trekking will be 45 minutes until you reach the peak of Mount Bromo.
Mount Bromo is one of the most active volcanoes in Indonesia, so it spews sulfuric smoke every day and there will be the sound of it. But it’s also a good view to see Mount Batok and the surrounding from here.
At about 8:30 am, we will walk down to the parking area, get our jeep and go back to our hotel for having breakfast, take a shower and continue our trip to the Lumajang area. We will drive about 3 hours away to reach your homestay here. In Lumajang there is no Hotel and just a few Homestay. So for hotel staying we will be staying in Lumajang Town but for homestay staying, we will be staying near Tumpak Sewu waterfall.
PLACE TO STAY:
LUMAJANG TOWN: HOTEL GAJAH MADA
TUMPAK SEWU WATERFALL AREA: ARTHA COTTAGE, YANTO HOMESTAY
DAY 3: MORNING DRIVE TO TUMPAK SEWU WATERFALL – DRIVING TO BANYUWANGI TOWN AREA (OVERNIGHT)
On the third day of the trip, we will start the trip at about 5 am in the morning because the best time to visit the waterfall is at 7 am after sunrise and the view of the surrounding will be clearer and not too bright for the color of the waterfall. And when you are lucky enough, there will be a fog /mist around the waterfall that makes your photo more surreal.
If you stay in Tumpak Sewu village, you don’t need to drive 1,5-2 hours from Lumajang, it’s only 5 minutes away from your accommodation there. So we will recommend staying at the Tumpak Sewu waterfall area.
We will drive about 1,5 – 2 hours away from Lumajang town, the way to reach this waterfall is quite zig-zag so please prepare your own comfort. When you reach that area, you will be amazed by the view of this waterfall. Not also Tumpak Sewu Waterfall, you can also see Kapas Biru Waterfall. Both waterfalls are very famous for Instagram needs. But you must be careful due to the slippery path and traditional bamboo fence.
At about 11:00 am, we will escort you back to the car and we will drive for about 5 hours to reach our hotel in the Banyuwangi area before we do midnight trekking in Ijen Crater.

The trekking will take about 2 hours away until we reach Blue Flame Aka Blue Fire point, the trekking path is quite slippery and rocky in some areas, so please listen to our guide. Did you know that blue flame is the most famous natural phenomenon that you can only find in Ijen Crater, Indonesia, and Dallol Volcano, Ethiopia? So, it will be super impressive to be witnesses here.
After enjoying the natural phenomenon here, we will go up to sunrise point to see the most beautiful crater lake of Mount Ijen. It has the biggest sulfuric lake in Indonesia and it has 0,5 ph. of acidity. That’s why this volcano is very interesting for some researchers, geologists, or volcanologists. Besides that, the color of the lake is turquoise, which makes Ijen Crater becoming one of the volcanoes with a great landscape for photography.
