After lunch we will head out for a 3 hour ride down into the sea of sand and around the crater of Mount Bromo. There is quite a bit of uphill to deal with and we will take it easy because of the altitude. After our ride we will hike up the 200 steps to the top of the crater of Mount Bromo. Those who are up for it can carry their bike up and ride down from the top through the loose sand of the volcano - an amazing trill! Our accommodation is located at 2200m above sea level. Bring some warm clothes as it gets cold here at night. (B L)
