June 2008 : Mount Bromo, Semeru National Park
Coming here was a little of a surprise to me, I lept at the chance of coming here when someone I knew decided to invite me on their trip. Mount Bromo has always been one of the places I wanted to visit, I had put it down on my travel bucket list.
The trip was quite short and I had wished that we could have spent a little more time here instead of just half a morning. We had spent 10 hours driving here, arriving only at 8pm the night before, waking up at 3am for the sunrise view of the three volcanos. In the 3 day tour around the region , I spent more than 20 hours travelling around in the van more than I had touring the places. This was the regret I had of coming here.
Well, there is always the next time.
Mount Semeru erupts every interval, blowing hot steam in the background.
Waiting for the sunrise in complete darkness along with pack load of tourists.
A few minutes before sunrise, at the middle far left , you probably can make up some village lights.
