Trip to Bromo

Gunung bromo merupakan salah satu objek wisata alam Indonesia yang berada di Kabupaten Pasurusan Jawa Timur

Hi everyone! How’s your life? I hope you’re good. 

It is so long time I haven’t posting in my blog. Today I want to share you about my experience when I visited Bromo mountain a year ago. I know it is too late but it is OK then never :D 

Visiting Bromo was on my wish list in 2014, but I had a chance to see it in 2019, Alhamdulillah :). My trip to Bromo started from Malang. My friend (Eka) and I prepared for our trip a month before we went to Malang. We tried to find some tour travel which could bring us to Bromo. There are many tours travels that you can choose if you want to visit Bromo. They have different prices and facilities. Their price usually starts from Rp 300.000 per person for an open trip to approximately Rp 1,7 million for a private trip (it depends on how many people in a trip). Some facilities usually provided are a photographer, transportation + driver, ticket fee for entering Bromo, mineral water, etc. 

After searching for some tour travel, we decided to choose Bromoasik as our tour travel to Bromo. If you want to know more about it, you can visit their Instagram account (@bromoasik). Why did we decide to choose that tour travel? Because they provided facilities which we needed for our trips, such as photographer, transportation + driver, and ticket fee for entering Bromo. For your information, we got two photographers (Mas Iqbal and Mas Nabil) on our trip, but usually, they only provide a photographer for one trip. Their price is also affordable, and it is only Rp 325.000. 

We started our trip from Malang Station at 11.30 pm. We met our tour guide (Mas Nabil) and four of our new friends who would have a trip to Bromo with us. Then we continued our journey to the travel agent’s base camp (I forget where the location was). When we arrived at the base camp, some other people wanted to have a trip to Bromo too. After waiting about 1.5 hours, we continued our journey to Bromo, almost at 02.00 am. We started to Bromo early to avoid traffic jams in that area, because if we went to Bromo at 04.00 or 05.00 am, it would be crowded and we couldn’t park near sunrise. It means that we should walk quite far. 

We arrived at the sunrise point at 3 am. We waited for sunrise while warming our bodies in the fireplaces provided in a small stall. Besides small stalls, a small prayer room (musolah) and some toilets. We also could buy some food and drinks, such as fried bananas, noodles, hot tea, hot coffee, hot milk, etc. They also sell some hats, scarves and rent jackets.

The Sunrise from Bromo
After having sholat subuh at 04.30 am, we waited about 30 minutes to see the sunrise. Finally, at 05.00, we saw the light from the sunrise point. You know what? That was very wonderful, Masya Allah. We were thrilled to see it because we couldn’t see the sunrise if it was cloudy. Then, we climbed Kingkong Hill. It is one of the best places to see Bromo Mountain. We were a little tired from climbing the hill, but it was OK because we could see the wonderful Bromo and took pictures from there. From this hill, we could see Bromo, Batok and Semeru Mountain. Unfortunately, we didn’t see Bromo mountain from the sunrise point because there was very crowded.

From Kingkong Hill, we also could see other mountains, but I didn't know the name of those mountains. It was literally above of sky when we were here.

Then we continued our trip to Widodaren Hill, Batok Mountain, Pasir Berbisik, Bukit Teletubbies and savanna. Of course, we didn’t forget to take some pictures. After that, we wanted to go to Kawah Bromo, but we all felt exhausted, so we decided not to go there (it means I must go to Bromo again one day.

Near Pasir Berbisik, many small stalls sell foods and drinks. Many people rent their horses. If you want to rent the horse, you must pay from Rp 10.000 (only for taking a picture with the horse) to Rp 150.000 ( If you want to be delivered somewhere).

I visited Bromo in March 2019. It was a rainy season, so the grasses in Savana were green, but the sky was not bright.

We finished our Bromo trip at noon. It was one of my wonderful experiences. I was so happy because I could realize my wish list to visit Bromo in 2019. What’s next? Hmm Dieng, please :)
