High on Nature

Strap on your boots to explore the natural wonders of Java’s Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. After a 3am wake-up call, we’re greeted by the fresh pre-dawn breeze and the spectacular panorama of Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. Even the half hour shivering in the dark waiting for the beautiful sunrise over Mount Bromo is worth the excitement.
