Mt. Bromo and Kawah Ijen Trek 2018, Indonesia, Kamis, 02. Agustus 2018

Trek through one of the most culturally rich and photogenic volcanoes on the planet. Mount Bromo is the most iconic and picturesque mountain in Indonesia standing majestically tall at 2329m. The scenery in the crater is otherworldly, it has vents that keeps spewing off yellow-white sulfurous smoke and low laying clouds that cover the lower portion of the major crater. It is a volcanic paradise of ethereal and breathtaking landscapes.

Join us in this trekking adventure in West Java, Indonesia. We will explore Mount Bromo and Ijen Plateau, both active volcanoes, via chartered 4x4 jeeps and a comfortable shuttle bus. Trek up to the crater of these 2 volcanoes and witness their spectacular beauty. In Bromo, we will take you to different spots such as Penanjakan 1 view deck, Whispering Sand, Teletubbies Hill, and the crater rim itself. Our adventure does not end in Mt. Bromo because we will go to Ijen Plateau to do a moderate trekking up to the beautiful Kawah Ijen. This is truly an otherworldly place for we will witness the blue flames the crater emits and we will encounter sulfur workers carrying massive sulfur rocks on their baskets. We will serve you with local dishes every day. A rare experience indeed.
