PMPE – Bromo – Ijen Photosafari from 17th to 20th April 2014



Photosafari is organising a photo trip to visit Mt Bromo and the Ijen caldera and Sulpur Mines in Indonesia. Mt Bromo is famous for its sunrises and awesome morning scenes. Our trip starts from Surabaya Airport in Indonesia. Once we land at the airport, we will be transported via mini vans to Mt Bromo. Our Hotel at Mt Bromo will be Hotel Cemara Indah on top of the hill overlooking Mt Bromo. In the early morning we will be transported to visit the sunrise at vantage point in Mt Bromo. From there we will visit the “Savanna desert” for some photo shoots before heading back to the hotel for breakfast.

After breakfast we will be going to Banyuwangi by minivan. The journey will take about 6 hours. We will check into Hotel Ketapang Indah. The journey to Ijen Sulphur mines starts around midnight. By the time we reach Ijen and trek up the caldera and down to  the sulphur mine it will be about 4am.  We will be bringing packed breakfast. After visiting the mines and the sulphur processing factory we will go back to the hotel for lunch. In the evening we will be going to Muncar Fish Harbour.
