Mount Bromo | East Java | Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park

Mount Bromo is an active volcano and part of the Tengger massif in East Java, Indonesia. At 2,329 neters, it is not the highest peak of the massif, but is the most well known. The volcano belongs to the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. Mount Bromo sits in the middle of a vast plain called the "Sea of Sand" (Javanese: Segara Wedi), a protected nature reserve since 1919.

Interesting locations/attractions:
