The trekking to Mount Bromo will take about 45 minutes walking, it’s quite sandy and dusty in the dry season, make sure you have a mask to cover your nose and also sunglasses. Upon your arrival at the peak of Mount Bromo, you will see a hole of fire that spews sulfuric smoke and also loud sound. Mount Bromo is an active volcano, so it spews smoke from its hole and it can erupt anytime. So we cannot stay longer at the peak of Mount Bromo. At about 8:30 am, we will be back to our jeep and then go to the hotel for having breakfast and clean up.
At about 11 am, we will check out from our hotel and drive for about an hour to reach our next destination. That is Madakaripura Waterfall. Madakaripura waterfall is one of the highest waterfalls in East Java is about 200 m in height.

So, please make sure you have the proper shoes, slippers, wetsuits, and wet bags with you.

The Rafting will take about 3-4 hours, so make sure you are ready enough to do these. Because the currents here are quite strong but the view of the surrounding is nice but it’s challenging.

The path is quite easy for the first kilometer but the second, third and last path to go down to the Blue Fire point is quite rocky and slippery, So we require you to always listen to our Tour Guide.
