You will start this journey with the Executive Sancaka Pagi train that leaves at 06:45 in Yogyakarta. Enjoy the scenery from behind your window, it is something else compared to traveling over the road. You will arrive after 5 hours, around 11:37, in Surabaya. Your driver is waiting for you at the train station.
It is a 3 hours drive to Cemara Lawang village, depending on traffic conditions.
Cemara Lawang offers splendid views over the Bromo area, the ancient caldera with a diameter of 10 km.
Check in at your hotel. Then it would be great to explore the area before it gets dark and see the sunset from a well picked spot.
Day 2: Bromo sunrise - drop Surabaya or Ketapang (ferry to Bali)
