It’s better for you not to sleep after your sunrise encounter. From mount penanjakan to mount bromo took around 20 minutes with the jeep, with the best view around 5 minutes before you get down to mount bromo’s area. I didn’t manage to take any picture of the view because I was extremely sleepy and I totally forgot to take out my camera. But I can show you how the view might look like.

Surabaya: Exploring A LOT of Museums + Transportation with just IDR 7.500 (English)
