Day 2: A Climb to Ijen – Bromo
Breakfast at 05.00, drive to the starting point Paltuding and climb to the top of Ijen and see the spectacular scenery of the crater. The climb to the top is easy as the sulfur collectors normally carry some sulfur weighing 50 up to 105 kgs! And most of them do that twice a day. When you are on top, you will be very much tempted to go down to the crater itself. Your guide will decide whether it is safe to go down and will give you a short brief how to breath with the mask in case the wind blows this very toxic gas to your face! Go back to the starting point, drive north to the direction of Bromo. Check in at the hotel around 17.30. It is advisable to go to sleep early to catch the 04.00 Jeep to Mount Penanjakan. (B)

Near the parking lot, you had better choose a strategic place to see the sunrise; the place is normally package with tourists in dry season. It is one of the most spectacular sceneries in Indonesia! Driving back to Mount Bromo, you may tell the driver to stop at a convenient place to take more pictures. Walk towards the foot of the volcano (700 m), a lot of horse masters will offer you to ride on their horses. It is fun, unless you feel sorry for those little animals carrying tourist every day.
