Once you reach the top, you can peer down into this active volcano, where you can see steam constantly rising out of a vent in the centre. The top of Mt. Bromo also affords beautiful views of the surrounding sand sea and hardened lava flows of previous eruptions. Return to Lava Lodge to pack up and prepare for the 5-hour drive by 4WD to Mt. Semeru. The drive is beautiful and varied - you will drive across the sand sea, through a gorgeous valley, up to the top of the crater’s rim, through rainforest, traditional villages, rice fields and other agricultural lands before reaching the national park at the foot of Mt. Semeru. En route you will stop to visit the lakes at Ranu Pane and Ranu Regulo. If you’re lucky, you may be able to see traditional Hindu celebrations on the way.

Semeru in time to enjoy dusk in the national park, as your guides set up camp (all camping equipment is provided). The elevation is around 600m, so the temperature is perfect for camping.

Semeru begin to clear, revealing the silhouette of this impressive peak. From the darkness of the national park, you can see the lava erupting from Mt.
