Route Ascent to Mount Bromo:

The trip through the west door of the direction of the entrance of the village pasuruan Tosari to go to the center of tourism (sea sand) fairly heavy due to terrain that must be taken can not be traversed by the ordinary four-wheeled vehicle is due to the way a derivative of the climbing is very steep towards the sea of ​​sand, except we rent a jeep provided by the tour manager, so many tourists who walk to get to the center location.

But if we go through the north door of the direction before entering the area Tongas Probolinggo ie, we will go Cemoro Lawang village before descending towards the sea of ​​sand it is not too heavy because the derivative of the slope was not so steep that any motorcycle could travel it. Most of the tourists who want to easily reach the sea of ​​sand through this pathway.

But you will be rewarded with another secret Bromo, which is very rarely seen tourists, namely ruput savanna and desert flowers very broad behind Mount Bromo. It's the opposite view on the north side of the arid and dusty.

Sea of ​​sand is the mainstay of Mount Bromo tour, in the cool mountain nature, we can see the desert and vast grass. While the most awaited from mount Bromo is sightview when the sun rises and sets because it will seem obvious and very beautiful. Although the trip to Bromo very dusty, but not felt, because of the beauty that served truly extraordinary.

Enjoy the scenery until 9 am and you can return to your departure city about 12 noon. For the record, if you travel diareal sea of ​​sand in the middle of the night, as a benchmark toward the parking area around the temple you can see the stakes of the concrete is deliberately given as a pointer towards the temple area.
