|Q: I am planning a trip to Mount Bromo with my cousins, around 10 people. We have only about 4 days, in and out of Indonesia, as it will be near Chinese New Year 2014. Do you have any itinerary suggestions? Thanks!
I would personally recommend to go via the Ngadas-Tumpang route from Malang to Bromo because it is just so amazing and full of adventure for the scenic 4WD ride to Mount Bromo via the crater. For Bromo 4WD adventure, I would suggest itinerary like this:
Day 1 – Fly into Surabaya, head straight to Malang via bus (3 hours)
Day 2 – Take 4WD from Malang to Mount Bromo
Day 3 – Mt Bromo sunrise trek, then catch bus to Surabaya at noon
Day 4 – Day trip around Surabaya, then fly out
A travel tip is that remember to book ahead for the 4WD as it is a popular Mount Bromo tour. Have a safe and fun independent travel there!
