Despite located in lower elevation, this viewpoint provides a fantastic closer look of Mount Bromo from different angle. Afterwards, head down to the crater of Mount Bromo for a short hike. We will then continue to Penanjakan and enjoy Bromo’s iconic viewpoint. Finally, we will descend down again to visit the savanna and whispering sand of Bromo.
