Bromo Volcano and Ijen Plateau Adventure

Duration: 3 Days

Overview

Found in East Java, Indonesia, the towering volcano Mount Bromo is the main attraction of the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. The otherworldly landscape and stunning scenery have made it one of the most popular tourist attractions on the island of Java. Although Bromo is the highlight, the park is also home to 2 larger volcanoes –Mount Batok (2,470 metres) and Mount Semuru (3,676 metres) – as well as an expansive area of sand/dust known as the Sea of Sand. Just outside the National Park there are some incredible viewpoints of Mount Bromo and its surroundings, which provide some of the most iconic and stunning views in all of Indonesia, especially at sunrise and sunset! Visiting the Bromo Tengger Semuru National Park is a truly unique experience and so we’d strongly recommend including it on any Indonesia itinerary.

Ijen Plateau is Indonesia’s most famous crater and lies in East Java, 2,600 meters tall, topped with a caldera with the world’s largest lake of highly acid (pH<0.5) and mineralized volcanic water. The lake has an average depth of 176 meters at a height of 2,368 m. Perhaps Ijen crater lake is the most amazing Indonesian lake. The view at the blue greenish lake is astonishing. The yellow sulphur that contrasts with the lake and the browinsh-red rocks surrounding it, completes the sea of color.
