At 01.00 am, early morning, you will be picked up at your hotel in Malang. In three hours you will be standing at Mt. Pananjakan, one of the highest view points in the vicinity of Mt. Bromo. But, first a coffee break. 
Seeing the sun rise, slowly giving away the secrets of the night, opening a new horizon; a black sea of sand completed with a savanna and in its midst the relatively small crater of Mt. Bromo. 
After the sun has risen, get some coffee or tea again if you wish to get a bit warmer. Then you descend into the Sea of Sand. After parking you walk in about 45 minutes to the crater rim of Mt. Bromo.

When we see you back at the Jeep, we will leave to Cemara Lawang village 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. We recommend to have a break at the winding road at Arak-arak Hill. Then, it will be another 1,5 hours drive to Bondowoso city, where you will spend the night.
