Mount Bromo is probably Indonesia’s most famous volcano. Easily accessible, tourists hike to the rim - situated at 7,641 feet - to observe the otherworldly landscape that is often found on so many Indonesian postcards. Sunrise from the top is truly spectacular. Mount Bromo is surrounded by a plain is known as the "Sea of Sand" - fine volcanic sand which has been a protected area since 1919. The caldera is a lifeless, bleak reminder of the destructive forces of nature when compared to the lush, green valleys below the peak. Temperatures are cool year-round in the national park, but dip down to near-freezing at night.
