Awake very early in the morning for an unforgettable sunrise tour of Mount Bromo. Travel by 4WD jeep to a viewing spot with stunning views of the Bromo volcano and its surroundings. Watch the sun as it rises up from behind the volcano in Penanjakan. The result is a spectacular display of nature the likes of which can scarcely be found anywhere else on the planet.
