Cemoro Lawang is small village located close to Bromo Mountain. This can be your base for the trip to Bromo crater and Mount Penanjakan (view point).
This time I booked a guesthouse in advance as I didn’t know that to expect in the village. Although there are several guesthouses you need to know almost every tourist is visiting this place to reach Bromo crater or Mt Penanjakan. You can meet a lot of people there and maybe join them for trips if you don’t want to go alone. That is a very good idea because the weather conditions might be hard. At the time I reached Cemoro the village was covered by volcanic ash. We almost could not breath the whole night.
It’s nice to take a walk through the village. The time has stopped there for the inhabitants. It’s a quiet and beautiful place. On the way back there was a lot of people waiting for a bus to Probilingo. But it never showed up! I remember asking local people to drive us out of the city but nobody was event interested. 🙂 That’s a really great adventure. We got stucked in this mountain village having no possibility for leaving it.
