Mt Bromo, East Java, Indonesia

Mt Bromo, East Java; isn't the highest mountain in Java, but it's probably the most famous one. Bromo is in fact only one of many peaks inside the massive Tengger Caldera, entire top has been blown off and the crater inside constantly belches white sulphurous smoke. To get there, you go horse riding across the 'sand ocean' across the caldera to the Hindu temple at the foot of the mountain. From the temple a steep path of 250 steps leads to the edge of the crater. The walk from the tourist centre to the top of the mountain should take no longer than 1.5 hours by foot, and is about 3km.
Jeeping across the sand ocean to the car park

Parking at the cordoned 'sand ocean' area
It is clear and it is cool
Reaching the bottom of Mt Bromo
Before the walk up the 250 stairs to the top
The 249 steps up Mt Bromo
At the bottom - Dr Mala, Aina, Ad and Yon
The view of the top of Mt Bromo
The view into the 'sand ocean' at the bottom
One side going up, one side coming down
Waiting for the horse to take us back down
(Sujai Asmed and Meymey)
Amel on the horse, trying to look brave
Ang, wouldn't dare to look back, till the horse stops
The Jeep, taking us around
The horses pulled by minders
View from Mt Bromo base into the 'sand ocean'
