Bromo is very popular with sunrise. The sunrise is the best one. it is surrounded by many towering mountains, and one of them is semeru – usually erupts every 15 – 25 minutes. And also many people called by smoky mountain because it is surrounded by much smoke

About ijen mount, Ijen is located in Banyuwangi regency, it’s famous with sun rise of java. The Fabled ijen plateau is vast volcanic region dominated by three cones of ijen (2368m), merapi(2800m) and raung (3332m). The turquoise lake in the Ijen Crater and the mystical world that the smoke creates around it attract tourists from all over the globe. The Ijen Crater is not only a major tourist attraction it is also a source of an important natural resource Sulfur.

One day the volcano produces around 60 tons of sulphur that is collected around 300 local people work here. The miners carry the sulfur rocks from the Crater down to the post in bamboo baskets; miner carries sulfur with load 60kg to 80kg. This is far from an easy task

Around the last of 2016 some miners made modification, they use push cart for carrying Sulphur , that only from the top to paltuding (name of parking area) from crater hole to the top of mount sulphur miners still use bamboo baskets

Now, some of sulphur miners one by one they learn English and they change their job in to local guide because it easier job. according sulphur miner’s information from 500 worker per day before – now only around 250 till 300 people per day now.

Besides sulfur, in ijen also contains natural gas. At night, the combination of heat and sulfur creates a magnificent, natural phenomenon referred to as blue fire.

Here is the itinerary

 

Day 1: surabaya – Madakalipura water fall – Go to hotel in bromo area

After arriving in juanda international airport in surabaya. We meet you in airport. Then we drive to Mada kalipura waterfall, I like this place partly because there are very few tourists who go there. Most of them come from the cities nearby. It takes around 4-5 hour, after arriving in water fall we will park car then we will get in OJEK (motor cycle) it is about 2 kilo meter, after ward we started a walk through a nice landscape on a small zigzagging path – a river coming from the waterfall , along this path we went under some falling water which was just freezing cold. The screams of excitement began, the end of the track was a massive cascading waterfall with a pool of water at the bottom.

The local people say that the waterfall is known for its healing qualities. It rained the previous day so the water was pounding heavily on top of our heads. Here I was filled with utter joy, pleasure and amazement. Our tour in water fall might take around 2 hours in total. Then go on to cemoro lawang

Day 2, Penanjakan Mount – Sea Sands – Bromo Mount – Go To Banyuwangi

Bromo is very popular with sunrise. The sunrise is the best one. it is surrounded by many towering mountains, and one of them is semeru – usually erupts every 15 – 25 minutes. And also many people called by smoky mountain because it is surrounded by much smoke

Here the itinerary is:

03:15 a.m. wake up! We took a 4.2 liter engine jeep to the Bromo lookout point called Mount Penanjakan. Here we wait sun rise here.

The sunrise was a good one. There were two perspectives, to the east the sun is rising over the horizon and to the west the breathtaking view of Mount Bromo, surrounded by many towering mountains, and one of them – Semeru – usually erupts every 15 – 25 minutes. On a clear day, the sunlight pours over the slopes of other mountains, highlighting the colorful scenery. I see Bromo several times a month and I enjoy the sounds of everyone getting excited. The sweet melodies of Javanese singing in their language and the eeewwwww’s and ahhhh’s building up as the sun rise got closer.

Back in the Jeep for another rocky ride to Bromo not too far away. When we got there I had to deal with all those horse masters who wanted the tourists to choose their horses for riding. In this place you may on horseback or just walk to stairs of Bromo.

Looking at the volcano this tour to Bromo was quite an easy one for us . We went back to the hotel to have breakfast, then go to banyuwangi.
