About Mount Bromo

Mount Bromo (IndonesianGunung Bromo), is an active volcano and part of the Tengger massif, in East JavaIndonesia. At 2,329 metres (7,641 ft) it is not the highest peak of the massif, but is the most well known. The massif area is one of the most visited tourist attractions in East JavaIndonesia. The volcano belongs to the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. The name of Bromo derived from Javanese pronunciation of Brahma, the Hindu creator god.

Mount Bromo sits in the middle of a plain called the "Sea of Sand" (JavaneseSegara Wedi or IndonesianLautan Pasir), a protected nature reserve since 1919. The typical way to visit Mount Bromo is from the nearby mountain village of Cemoro Lawang. From there it is possible to walk to the volcano in about 45 minutes, but it is also possible to take an organised jeep tour, which includes a stop at the viewpoint on Mount Penanjakan (2,770 m or 9,088 ft) (IndonesianGunung Penanjakan). The viewpoint on Mount Penanjakan can also be reached on foot in about two hours.
