Road to Bromo Mountain Indonesia (backpack)
Bromo is one of the amazing mountain view at East Java, Indonesia. Actually bromo located at Pasuruan, East Java. There are two way to reach bromo, from Probololinggo, and the other one from Malang.
Herein I will share the detail route from probolinggo. Firstly and easily access is from Surabaya-state city of East java-. Surabaya has international airport either bus terminal. If you travel by plane, you need go to second bus terminal called Bungur Asih buy taxi. from bungus asih termonal you should continue to Probolonggo bus terminal. There are many bus travel to Probolinggo. After we come to bus terminal of Probolingggo, u just need to continue your travelling by mini bus (the origin people called it taxi – not actually taxi). I suggest you to reach probolinggo before 5.00pm, cause the ‘taxi’ is not available at the evening. This ‘taxi’ will guide you to cemoro lawang –the last stop -. You can get sleep right here at the hotel or by rent the house of the community. I suggest you to book ‘hardtop’ while you take dinner. The ‘hardtop’ will guide you at the early morning at 4.00am to climb to bukit penanjakan – the view point of bromo, what an un forgettable moment -. After that, you will guide to kawah bromo itself. You need to hike to kawah bromo, to see how bromo produce the cloud. And you can continue your vacation to the last destination around bromo called padang savanna.
Here the detail –approximately cost- :
Juanda Airport (Surabaya) – Bungus asih bus terminal by taxi around IDR 200.000.-/car
Bungur asih bus terminal – Probolinggo bus termina by bus around IDR 14.000.-/person
Probolinggo bus terminal – Cemoro lawang (las stop) by “taxi” around IDR 25.000.-/person
