Mount Bromo sunrise tour - one of Indonesia's most legendary volcanoes

At 00:00 the crew will be waiting for you at the reception at Ibis Budget Surabaya Airport. 
In about 3 hours - depending on traffic conditions - you will drive to Cemara Lawang village. Once in Cemara Lawang the 4wd Jeep is ready for departure.
First is Mount Pananjakan, one of the highest viewpoints in the area the see the sunrise. A 45 minutes Jeep-ride will bring you there. The last part to the viewpoint you will have to walk. Depending on how many Jeeps have parked, the walk will be longer or shorter.
Weather conditions and temperature will dye the sky you are looking at... Don't look too far to the east, as the Bromo lies south. The sunrise is different every single day.
Once the sun has risen and you have enjoyed the view, the driver is ready to continue. You will be heading - now by daylight - to the black volcanic ashen sea of sand. You can ask the driver to stop if you like to walk. Otherwise, the driver will park near Luhur Poten temple.
Then it is a 45 min walk to the top of the active volcano Bromo. Take your time for this expedition and enjoy it.
When ready, slowly walk back to your Jeep, to take in the environment. You will be heading back to Cemara Lawang village to have breakfast
After breakfast, the tour continues to the Madakaripura waterfalls. After the car parked in the parking area, it is a 10 min ride by motorbike taxi to the entrance. Together with a local guide, you walk in about 30 min to the waterfalls. Be ready to get wet.
After the waterfalls, you will be brought back to Juanda International Airport in Surabaya where your Garuda-flight departs at 16:50. You will arrive in Denpasar at 19:15. Your Bali Bromo tour has come to an end.

Note: as Bromo is an active volcano, every now and then - as unpredictable as volcanoes are - a safety zone might be issued. In that case, one can't climb to the top, but all other parts of the tour can be carried out. Remember that seeing the volcano being active is a privilege as well.
