The active Bromo volcano on Java Island in Indonesia

Bromo Volcano is one of the brightest and most popular attractions of Java and Indonesia in general.

Come here from all over the world to make a predawn climb and admire the sunrise over the crater of the active volcano. It attracts with its fantastic, unearthly scenery, which is believed to resemble the lunar or Martian landscapes. Such places are commonly called caldera, rounded zircon pits formed by the collapse of volcanic cones. Bromeau is one of the peaks of the massive caldera, but it is easy to recognise as almost the entire peak has been pulled down by eruptions and white smoke clouds continue to burst out of the crater. Inside the caldera, also called Laut Pacir (“Sea of Sand”), is an area of 10 square kilometres covered with white fine volcanic ash. Compared to the abundance of emerald green valleys around it, this huge ash desert gives a creepy impression.

You have to keep in mind that the volcano is active and do not leave the beaten paths. In clear weather, which is usually during the dry season from April to October, you can see the opposite shores of the island, which are hundreds of kilometers apart, as well as the neighboring Bali.
