Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park (As The Sun Rises)

Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park, East Java, Indonesia. Watch the sun rises. It was 05:23 am (25JAN2009). The national park is named after its two mountains, Mount Semeru (the highest on Java) and Mount Bromo (the most popular). The area around the mountain is inhabited by the Tenggerese, the only Hindus left on the island of Java. For many visitors, the sight of angular-faced, sunburned, moustachioed Tenggerese wrapped in poncho-like blankets, trotting about on ponies with craggy mountains as the backdrop more resembles Peru than Indonesia!

Watching the sun rises : 05:18 am on that cold Sunday 25th January, 2009.Yon, Dr Mala and Dr Rose

Breathtaking view when the sun peeks through
Jeeps - only transportation mode to the top!
As the day breaks, the clouds break up too
Welcome sign - the only entrance to the tip
Our children - excited, cold and hungry
Beautiful clouds shrouding the tips of the mountains
Amel, Ang and Me (cold brrr)
As the sun peeks, the cameras clicks
Amel - at the edge of the cliff
Ang - wants to be photographed there too
