This is the picture of Mt Bromo crater I took many years ago. I think it was on my first visit to Mt Bromo around 1980s.
Any changes (compared to the previous pic) ???
It's smelly. I think so. Hahah. The smell comes from Mt Bromo crater is pretty bad like a rotten egg.
Located next to Mt Bromo, this mountain is rarely climbed by visitors. However, its existance adds to the beauty of this National Park
To see the caldera we have to climb stair, it's better to do this in the morning after seeing sunrise from Penanjakan.
Whenyou're on top, you get the most wonderful sights you can dream of.
It looks like you're above the clouds so that you can't even see the surface of the valley.
Lovely and worth the early wake up
You can either climb the not very steep mountain and you can horses do the work for you.
We passed them and pretended we were young and fit enough to do it on ourselves.
This the extraordinary view you get whenj you, finally, arrive at the top
Don't be afraid it's nowhere near dangerous.
But the sulfur smell is horrible !!!!
Another lively village before Cemoro Lawang, on the way to the lip of Tengger crater. It's about 4 km before Cemoro Lawang and here's laying a nice place to stay called Yoschi's Guest House.
Along the way to the summit of Gunung Penanjakan, can be found lovely mountain flower Edelweiss and several kind of flowers. Mostly small, compact and cutie ....
Standing at entry point to Bromo outer rim in Tengger caldera, can be seen a beautiful sunset. Especially in dry season [summer ;)] from March to October. This picture I was taken from Cemoro Lawang.
Gunung Bromo still an active volcano. From the crater, can be seen sulphur fumes comes out. Just like smoking :)
