HOW TO EXPLORE MOUNT BROMO?
There are 3 ways to explore Mount Bromo:
- Book a local jeep from Cemoro Lawang Village to Kingkong Hill for Sunrise Trip. Kingkong Hill is one of the best viewpoints here to see the sunrise.
- Rent a Motorbike from the local providers, it’s quite dangerous because the road to reach Sunrise Point is sandy and steep. So we recommend only professional drivers can take this option.
- By foot, this is only for the one who loves trekking, because it will take more than 2 hours to reach the sunrise point, and we recommend taking Seruni Point instead of Kingkong Hill.
We highly recommend you to stay 2 nights in Mount Bromo, so you can see the beauty of Mount Bromo and also the local people here Because the local people in the Mount Bromo area is one of the oldest Hindu people in Indonesia before Bali. We call them Tenggerese People.
And after the trip, we recommend you to take a flight from Surabaya to Bali, it’s less tiring than you have to come back to the same route from Bali. But it depends on your budget too.
