Mt. Bromo

Java is home to delicious coffee, the Java Tiger and also Mount Bromo, which stands over 2,300 meters above sea level. Mount Batok, Mount Bromo and Mount Semeru (which erupted in 2004 in a major way, but erupts every 20 minutes or so in a very small way in geological terms) comprise an impressive trio of volcanoes in this immediate area.

Sunrise at Mt. Bromo is a must-do for travelers who enjoy hiking, trekking and photography. Other highlights of the area include the Tengger people, who have a unique religion influenced by Buddhism; the blue acid lake at Kawah Ijen's active volcano; and the Ijen Plateau, which features Arabica coffee plantations built during the Dutch colonial period.

EXPERIENCES

Ijen Plateau

After a scenic drive through the lovely landscape of the Ijen Plateau, visit a famous coffee plantation. Also within the area is a charming hotel built by Dutch colonialists, along with natural hot springs. Coffee lovers will also be delighted by the fine Arabica coffee grown on the premises.

Kawah Ijen Volcano

Travel to Paltuding to begin a two-hour hike up to the beautiful crater at Kawah Ijen, an active volcano. At the top lies a blue acid lake – actually the most acidic in the world.

Madakaripura Waterfall

Reaching a height of 660 feet (200 meters), Madakaripura Waterfall lies in the foothills of the Tengger range, near the village of Sapih. Set amidst the lush jungle, the waterfall is a powerful cascade, long revered, and even worshipped, by locals. The Tengger people of the area believe that the water is holy, and as such, use it extensively in various cultural ceremonies.

Mt Bromo Hike

Rise at 4 a.m. and hike up Mount Bromo in time for the sunrise. It can be a bit cold and cloudy, but the summit of Mount Bromo offers a magnificent vantage point.

Whispering Sands

The pasir berbisik, or “whispering sands,” are an area of volcanic sands that produce eerie sounds, seemingly akin to whispers. Combined with the desolate, barren landscape, the strange noises lend the pasir berbisik an otherworldly feel.
