Mount Bromo, situated within the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park, is one of the most famous attractions in east Java.  While it is one of many peaks within the Tengger Caldera, it is also its most famous - easily recognizable because entire cap has been blown off by a previous volcanic eruption.  Today, smoke is frequently seen billowing out from the top.

Mount Bromo was traditionally visited by the Buddhist Tenggerse, who, on the fourteeth day of the month of Kasada, would gather at the rim of the active crater to present offerings to the Supreme God, Hyang Widi Wasa.  According to legend, this practice started as the king Joko Seger and queen Roro Anteng prayed for children, and in return, promised to sacrifice the last child.  The Queen had 25 children, but refused at first to sacrifice the last child.  When threatened by the gods with fire and brimstone, the queen finally did perform the sacrifice.  As the child was being thrown into the crater, the voice of the child was heard ordering an annual ceremony to be performed at the volcano.

A Hindu temple is situated at the foot of the mountain, from which 250 steps lead to the edge of the crater.

Getting there:
Situated 145 km (90 miles) south of Subraya within the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park.  To reach Mount Bromo, take the left fork at the Cermoro Lawang solitary crossing, then head up the ramp and across to the mountain.

Climbing to the top before sunrise is absolutely worth the experience. The view is amazing!

If you have more than one day there, try to go on a day with not too many clouds. This will give you the best experience.

One of the best volcanic mount in Indonesia to be visited. 3'o clock you can go for a lovely brilliant Sun rise and then climb up to the rim of the mount to see the cratar which is 20kms radius.
