We planning of going to Batu, Malang from Kawah Ijen.
Anyone can advice how long it take to reach batu, malang from Kawah Ijen?
We depart after lunch from Ijen.
We plan to spend a night in Batu and then vist the apple, orange and fruit orchards. Wish to visit singgosari as well.
On the next day we are heading back to Surabaya from Batu.
Any one can advice how long it takes? And how is the journey from Batu to Surabay? I heard the Lapindo case has destroyed the tol road betweem surabaya and Malang? What is the latest condition?
It depends on how you are travelling. In a car from Kawa Ijen to Batu around 5 hours, by bus it will take longer.
From Batu to Surabaya by car around 2.5 hours, by bus longer, also depends on traffic and time of year
