3.30 am : We tracked downhill with other 4 dutchmen at moon-light dark, headlamps did so well. Dust were all over flying our eyes. We reached ‘Segoro Wedhi’. The sea of sand.

4.10 am : We’re all like stealth walking at the distant dark, the smells, the persona, that feeling. We’re on the feet of Brahma, on the run. Chasing, chasing for Brahma’s sun to awake, to get the ace to the grace with Brahma’s head.

05.00am : Dehidrate. Stopped for liquid. Another stage. Upside walk. Minimal oxygen at 3000M above the sea. Skies getting dark cherry. Reddish and oranges. finally. We reached all stairs. A lot of people wait to merit the same joy, and it’s the Sun coming up.

Scenes from on the top of Mount Bromo

We meet. Greet. Chat. A lot of people with their expertise with same goal. Ate a pop mie and fruit tea for another energy. Its time to explore Brahma’s belly.

08.10 am : We’re downhilled. Observe the texture of frozen larva morphed into solid and sands.

Brahma’s belly were swept our mind compeletely. mystical place for a mystical being. it was a total redemption. priceless


11.10 am : and then.. We went back to the hotel to packed our stuff and check out. We had a Nasi Pecel with Lele Fish before. Shit. Best thing we ate. See you soon Bromo.

Mount Bromo, is one of the most visited tourist attractions in East Java, Indonesia. The typical way to visit Mount Bromo is from the nearby mountain village of Cemoro Lawang. I think it’s best view is from Mount Bromo to the sand sea below, and the surrounding volcanoes at sunrise. At Mount Penanjakan you can reach the viewpoint by foot in about two hours.

How to reach Mount bromo?

The nearest airport to Mount Bromo is at Surabaya (Juanda International Airport) it takes 3 hours by bus. Most visitors could access Mount Bromo  from Cemoro Lawang. To go Cemoro Lawang, from airport you have to take the Damri shuttle bus to the Bungurasih Bus Terminal, it costs 20.000 rupiah (US $2). From there, take the Patas air-conditioned bus to Probolinggo, it costs 25.000 rupiah (US $2.50). The journey takes about 2-3 hours.

At Probolinggo, take a old hiace and it costs 25.000 rupiah (US $2.50), it is another one hour to Ngadisari, a town about 6km northeast of Mount Bromo and the base camp for Mount Bromo trips. Another base camp is Cemoro Lawang, about half an hour from Ngadisari. You can get accommodation at Ngadisari so that you start off a little after midnight for the trip to MountBromo . Bring ur warm clothing, usually temperature can be drop to between zero and three degrees celcius. From Ngadisari, it is about half an hour to Cemoro Lawang.The foot of Mount Bromo is a 3-km hike from Cemoro Lawang.

Spiritual. Cold. Windy. Calm. Wide. Relaxing. Foggy. Blue. Magenta. Sandy.

The wind whispered a warm welcome, been hospitalized by vision. a grey enormous fog were like passer by traffic. I could feel their ammonia’s breathing heavily. a low to high pitched frequency. It’s Brahma Soldier. -abim

We stayed at Hotel Cemara Indah 2, it’s a nice hotel. Economy Room with 2 single bed, for 80.000 rupiah (US $8)/night.  You can see Mount Bromo when you go out the front door..   Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner? Go to warung sejatie tante tolly. It’s cheap. (part.1- end)
