    Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park is one of popular National Park in East Java Povince, The Northern Part of this National Park is belong to Probolinggo Regency, but the South Eastern Part is belong to LUMAJANG Regency, so if someone take a trip to Lumajang, you would see beautiful sight of Bromo Mountain Range in different side than from Regular track Cemoro Lawang, this is why Lumajang now is one of popular destination amongst tourist, local or domestic
    LUmajaNG is popular with Puncak B-29 (B-29 Plateau) and NEGERI DIATAS AWAN ( THE COUNTRY ABOVE THE SKY ) is the place where the tourist would see a Fantastic view of Mount Bromo and its Sand dunes which located below the hills, from the same point, a bluish peak of Mount Semeru flag all attendants as a sign in encourages hiker to climb up this higher mountain in East Java

    Selokambang (lit. the floating stone) is one of highlight of Lumajang. It's located at the foot of Mt Semeru, which is the highest volcano on Java. This pool can be reached from the town center by minibuses, or for more interesting view you can rent a bike and cycle there (only 6 km). This pool is very popular among locals, but not so crowded. The most enjoyable way is to get there early in the morning and enjoy the sunrise when dipping in it.

    Favorite thing: As a small town with 1 million population only (gosh...., it's still a tiny regency compared to other cities in Java), Lumajang tends to have a quiet and wide street, crowded by becak rickshaw instead of cars. The main street is just a long street with shops and vendors everywhere. A really "quiet" town. Everything is cheap here compared to other cities in Java, but not so much variety for shopping. The locals tend to go to Surabaya or Jember for a more complete shopping.
