Day 1: Malang - Cemara Lawang
After breakfast see a bit of Malang's well known spots; monument Tugu at the round alun-alun, the town hall, and the bird and flower market. The bird market is really something more than just an ordinary bird market. Take your time, before driving to the temple Singosari, just an hour from Malang. The temple Sumberawan is also worth a visit before going to the tea plantation Wonosari. You can have lunch here as well (not included in the price) or on the way to Mt. Bromo. You will arrive in the afternoon in the village Cemara Lawang. You have some spare time left in which you can explore the Tengger area.
Day 2: Mt. Pananjakan & Bromo - Sempol (Ijen Plateau)
Morning call at 03.30. Have a cup of coffee or tea before you get into the car on your way to Mt. Pananjakan. It is the highest view point in the area from where you can see Mt. Bromo and the area. Once the sun has risen and you have seen enough, we descend to see the active volcano Mt. Bromo. First you will pass partly the sea of sand. Then it still will be a 45 minutes walk (one way) to the crater rim. Enjoy and relax the special feeling of being in this wonderful landscape that you won't find anywhere else.
Then, we will drive you back to your hotel to have breakfast before departing in the direction of the Ijen Plateau. A break will be at/near the beach Pasir Putih (not included). At the end of the afternoon you will arrive at the Ijen Plateau to spend the night. If you are not too tired you can explore the area, you will find a coffee factory, a sulfuric hot-spring, a waterfall, the plantation itself, some local houses, etc. Or, if you are tired, just relax in your hotel.
Day 3: Sempol - Ijen crater lake - Pemuteran
At 5 o'clock in the morning we start driving to Paltuding. Here we park the car and you start walking to Ijen's crater lake. It is a 3 km walk, that will take you about 1.5 hours (yes, it is going up). During your walk you will meet sulfur miners carrying sulfur down to the weighing area (near the parking lot). They carry sulfur from the crater up to the rim. Dangerous work.
We will meet you back at the car, once you have enjoyed it all. Then we will drive in around 1.5 hours via Licin to Ketapang. In Ketapang you take the ferry to Bali together with your guide from Bali. It will take about 1.5 hours to cross the Bali Strait. In Pemuteran your car is waiting. It will take about one hour to get to your hotel in Pemuteran. Enjoy your day.
Day 4: Menjangan island and snorkeling - Next Destination
After breakfast, around 7 o'clock in the morning, we depart to Banyu Wedang, a traditional harbor. Here you can choose your equipment that is needed for snorkeling. Together with a very experienced guide you will enjoy two snorkeling spots. Don’t forget your sun cream!!!
At around 11 o'clock you will get back to the main land and back to your hotel. Prepare for your next destination.
