How Did I Get There?
I flew to Surabaya. I checked in to my hotel, Ibis @ Rajawali. I asked the hotel receptionist to arrange me a driver to get me to Mount Bromo.
How Much Does it Cost?
From my hotel, Ibis @ Rajawali to Mount Bromo and back (normal car)
Cost: Rp 1,200,000
I left the hotel at 1130pm.
At Mount Bromo, I change to a Jeep. I reach at the foot of mount bromo at 2.30am
Cost (inclusive of 2 tickets to Mount Bromo entrance) Rp 1,200,000
First Stop : Sunrise at Mount Bromo
Reach at the place to view sunrise at about 4am. Temperature is about 10 °C
Before I went up to view the sunrise, I had coffee. There is some local cafe just before the peak to view the sunrise. I get myself a corn as well.
I can't remember how much is the coffee but the corn cost Rp 10000
The Main Event: Mount Bromo
After sunrise, took the jeep and off to the volcano. Mist is tick. You have to walk about 2 km before you enter the compound of mount Bromo. You may ride a horse if you don't feel like walking.
Cost Rp 100,000 for 2 horses one way
This is what it look like once you enter the area of mount Bromo.
I hope this help. Im not a good blog writer but I bet you look good on the dance floor :)
