Smokes of Bromo

There will be different experience awaits every time you visit Bromo, no matter how often. This place has so many things to offer… and I was here again last week.

Bromo is always active, but this time is in alert status for its higher volcanic activity (minor explosion) that throws materials and dust up to the sky for as high as 800 meters, making it 1 out of 21 active volcanoes in the country.

Not like Merapi, for instance, the character is different as Bromo makes no volcanic tremor nor rumble that can be detected by human senses. No dangerous wedhus gembel (pyroclastic / hot smokes which flow down the hill from the top).

The latest eruption was in 2004.

2.392 m above sea level, Bromo is the youngest among the other mountains on this 10 square km caldera of Super volcano Tengger.

Bromo is a friend of Tengger people…..


Enjoy the smokes of Bromo, but do not inhale… ;-)
