MOUNT BROMO

Mount Bromo, or Bromo Volcano (2329m) is one of the most active and accessible volcanoes in Indonesia (last eruption October 2016) and therefore one of the most visited and photogenic mountains in the country. It s part of the Tengger massif and belongs to the Tengger-Bromo-Semeru National Park and his name is derived from Javanese Bhama, the Hindu creator god.

The volcano sits with four other volcanoes in the middle of a plain called the “Sea of Sand”, a protected natural reserve since 1919. The massif also contains the highest mountain in Java, Mount Semeru (3,676 m), four lakes and 50 rivers.Mount Bromo | A Spectacular Volcanoes in Indonesia

Culture | Mount Bromo

On the fourteenth day of the Hindu festival of Yadnya Kasada, the Tenggerese people of Probolinggo, East Java, travel up the mountain in order to make offerings of fruit, rice, vegetables, flowers and sacrifices of livestock to the mountain gods by throwing them into the caldera of the volcano. The origin of the ritual lies in the 15th-century legend.

On the sandplain, locally called Segara Wedi (lit. sand ocean), sits a Hindu temple called Pura Luhur Poten. The temple holds significant importance to the Tenggerese scattered across the mountain villages, suchas NgadisariWonokitriNgadasArgosari, Ranu Prani, Ledok Ombo and Wonokerso.

The temple organises the annual Yadnya Kasada ceremony which lasts for about one month. The major difference between this temple and Balinese ones are the type of stones and building materials. Pura Luhur Poten uses natural black stones from volcanoes nearby, while Balinese temples are mostly made from red bricks. Inside this Pure, there are several buildings and enclosures aligned in a mandala zone

1.Friendly People in a Friendly Place | mount Bromo

When you visit this mountain you will meet friendly people. The main gate to Mount Bromo is the Tengger Tribe Village. On either side, of the road, there is a unique range of houses belonging to Local residents on a slope of fewer than 180 degrees.

And the thing that makes me always love this place is we will never be bored when we are on one trip, because on our right and left we will be served by a cluster of hills and plantations. Because as we know that the Tengger Tribe people make their living as farmers.

2.The Best Sunrise and Instagramable Spot Mount Bromo

Usually, the trip will start at 2 O’clock. Before we had to the crater of Mount Bromo, we will enjoy the panorama of Mount Bromo’s sunrise on the Penanjakan Hill. The time will be taken from the homestay to the Penanjakan Hill around 1-1.5 hours (depending on the density of visitors) with a distance of approximately 2 km. The path to get to Penanjakan Hill itself through Seruni Point.

Because this tourist destination is always full of visitors every day, the residents take advantage of the opportunities to trade by setting up a stall at the foot of Penanjakan Hill. The ascent to the hill will begin at 4 O’clock in the early morning. The terrain of this hill is not so steep, that the slope is around 60-70 degrees.

Arriving at the top we will wait for a while and finally, the moment of sunrise comes. On the Penanjakan hill, this is a lot of tourists who capture the moment by taking a photo. Because as the title suggests this place is one of the Instagramable spots. So not infrequently many visitors hunt for photos here.

3.The Unique Climbing Route in Mount Bromo

If Mount Ijen has a Taxi Pull (I call that) or trolley transporting visitors, Mount Bromo also has a private vehicle that is a horse. When we do the climb to Mount Bromo, arriving in the parking area you will find residents who bring a horse. Exactly, the horses are rented for Rp. 75,000 / one way (from the parking area to the main gate). Why horses?. Because the terrain of Mount Bromo is sandy, so our steps will be heavier to use walking.

Uniquely, the terrain from the gate (The foot of Mount Bromo) to the top is full of stairs. Short story, you will climb as many as 250 stairs with a very uphill slope, so it will be very draining and breathing. Don’t forget to bring a scarf or mask and sunglasses, because as I already told you that the terrain from Mount Bromo is sandy and dusty.

4.The Real Beauty Above The Summit Mount Bromo

Here it is the awaited moment to see the real beauty on the top of Mount Bromo. We can see a lot of views when we reach the top of Mount Bromo. Clusters of hills, seas of sand, people who roll in to do climbing and one of the places of worship of Hindu people, Poten Bromo Temple. And the most important thing is the exoticism of the crater of Mount Bromo.

5.Riding a Jeep while on the way

The means of transportation used during the trip, from the beginning to the end of the trip using Jeep transportation. This transportation and the terrain that we will go through makes our hearts challenged to drive it. Sometimes some drivers allow us to drive it, some do not allow it, depending on whether we can drive it or not. You can rent a jeep from Local residents. Usually, the jeep is parked in front of the homestay, so you can rent it to the homestay owner.
Well, those were the things that we can find when we explore Mount Bromo. Keep the spirit, keep travelling!.
