Mount Bromo

Standing proud at 2,329 metres above sea level, Mount Bromo really is a phenomenal sight to behold, especially at sunrise when it appears almost otherworldly.

Located within Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park in East Java, this natural wonder is still very much an active volcano. Its symmetrical shape is arguably most impressive during a spectacular sunrise when seen from the rim of Mount Penanjakan: we guarantee that you’ll forget all about your early morning wake-up call as soon as you’re greeted by the striking views! Mesmerising vistas over the nearby volcanoes, Mount Batok and Mount Semeru, are equally unforgettable. With wisps of smoke and dramatic sounds from the smouldering craters filling the air, you are bound to be entranced by the sheer power of Mother Nature here.

The journey to the viewpoint is an adventure in itself, as you travel over fertile rice paddy fields to the imposing Laotian Pasir (known as the Sea of Sand), a vast expanse of volcanic ash surrounding the volcano like a moat around the castle, before reaching the main spectacle. Remember to wrap up warm as it can get surprisingly chilly here at night, dropping to near-freezing temperatures, before the sun makes its glorious appearance.

If you are tempted to get under the skin of Indonesia and join in with an ancient religious ceremony, visit during the Yadnya Kasada festival to witness the local Tengger people gather by Bromo’s crater for their yearly homage to the gods.

We recommend visiting this beauty spot in tandem with the scenic Ijen Plateau to see its renowned ‘Blue Fire’ crater, which lies along the Java's north-eastern coastline nearby, before spending a few days recovering from your adventures at the charming Puri Ganesha in Pemuteran, Bali.

All in all, Mount Bromo is worth including in your trip if you are after something active and magnificent landscapes - we are certain that keen hikers and photographers will not be disappointed by this thrilling experience.

I dislike feeling at home when I am abroad.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!

We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
