We have received numerous requests to organise short weekend trips to nearby places. A trip to Mt Bromo certainly qualifies in this category. Here is a three days and two nights’ trip to Mt Bromo.
Mt Bromo is an active volcano and one of the easiest to access. It sits on the Tengger Massif and is part of the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. This place has lots to offer photographically speaking. Beautiful sunrises, sunsets, grassland, desert, village life, horsemen and volcanic landscape all roll into one. If you have not been to Mt Bromo, it’s time to tick this place on your bucket list.
The journey starts from Surabaya Airport in Indonesia, from there it is about a four-hour journey to the Tengger caldera. Please make sure you book the recommended flights to arrive and depart from Surabaya so that we can travel as a group.
