After enjoying Bromo we get back to the village Cemara Lawang to have breakfast. After After parking you walk in about 45 minutes to the crater rim of Mt. Bromo.

When we see you back at the car, we will leave to Cemara Lawang and off to the Ijen Plateau. Since it is a long drive, you can stop anywhere you like to get some rest and stretch your legs.
