This National Park is the most popular and recommended destination in East Java Province.
Its natural beauty has attracted many visitors, both local and foreign, to visit and enjoy this mountainous area.

Visitors can enjoy the sunrise and breathtaking scenery from the top of Mt. Bromo or Mt. Penanjakan. However, the view from Mt. Penanjakan is more spectacular because you can see the whole area from the top of Mt. Penanjakan like what you see on the opening picture I display here.

This mountain can easily be reached from Probolinggo, East Java. Its beautiful area is the main reason why many people like visiting this mountain. I have been there a few times, too.
And, you can enjoy the sunrise and sunset from the top of the mountain.

Mount Semeru or Mahameru

A mighty mountain, this active volcano is pretty notorious. It's a lovely place for mountain lovers. Climbing this mountain is a real challenge.

Hope the tips I write here can be useful for you if you are interested in hiking the peak of Mt Semeru.

This website has more information about the volcanoes in Indonesia including Mt Semeru:

Indonesia is home of many active volcanoes. If I am not mistaken, Indonesia is second in rank of numbers of deathliest eruptions in the world (after Japan).

    Interesting pages on Tengger Caldera, especially the view from Mount Penanjaken -- awesome-- and Mt. Semenu, with that puff of smoke coming out of it. Well done. Lori.
