Climbing Mount Bromo: In Photos

During our tour of the volcanoes of Bromo and Ijen in East Java, Indonesia, we had some free time to explore Mount Bromo.

We had got up very early to see the sunrise over Bromo from Gunung Penanjakan viewpoint. We had set off at 4am in jeep, and now, after the sunrise we were going to climb up Mount Bromo itself.

Mount Bromo is an active volcano in East Java and we could see a cloud of smoke coming out of the top of it. Our jeep dropped us at the foot of the volcano and we set off…

We were dumped in the “Sea of Sand” and pointed in the right direction… That way!

If you’re too lazy to walk up the volcano you can ride on horseback. You will still get covered in ash though.

Getting there…

This is a much more difficult climb than anyone ever mentioned!

Especially at stupid o’clock and without yet having had breakfast.
