Located some 4 hour drive from Surabaya, the capital of East Java, Mount Bromo is a part of the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park that covers a massive area of 800 square km. The mountain beckons majestically despite having the entire top blown off and with a crater inside that keeps spewing off-white sulphurous smoke. While it may be small when measured against other volcanoes in Indonesia, the magnificent Mount Bromo will not disappoint with its spectacular views and dramatic landscapes. At 2,392 meters tall, Mount Bromo is not among the tallest of Indonesia’s mountains but its stunning beauty lies in its incredible setting and thus the most hiked mountain in Indonesia.
Sunrise at Mt. Bromo is a must-do for travelers who enjoy hiking, trekking and photography. Other highlights of the area include the Tengger people, who have a unique religion influenced by Buddhism; the blue acid lake at Kawah Ijen's active volcano; and the Ijen Plateau, which features Arabica coffee plantations built during the Dutch colonial period.

Best Time to Visit Mount Bromo
Best time to visit Mount Bromo is during months from June to August where there is less rain and the weather condition is just perfect for outdoor activities. August is also the month for the Kesada/Kesodo festival for the Tengger people if you are interested. But that being said, Indonesia being a fairly mild weather of just rain and shine, anytime is a good time to go Mount Bromo, only check out for local weather when you are there for the best clear sky for your sunrise experience. Also try to avoid weekends if you do not want the crowd.
Seeing sunrise over Mount Bromo, Indonesia is one of the most awe-inspiring and memorable vistas in the world. It’s not the most famous, the most active or the biggest volcano in the world, but Indonesia’s 2392m-high Mount Bromo is one of the most picturesque – in a dusty, post-apocalyptic sort of way.
