Bromo becomes more expensive  (1 Answer)

Starting May 2014 visiting Bromo will become much more expensive, according to what we read in the newspaper "Jawa Pos".
The government has decided to raise the entrance fee for the National Park (not including jeep tour and horse trip) by several hundred percent, and to set a different tariff for weekdays and for holidays.
For foreign tourists the fee was Rp 57,000 per person; this will become Rp 267,000 on weekdays and Rp 400,500 during weekends and holidays.
Local tourists (including foreigners holding a residence permit) used to pay Rp 10,000. This will become Rp 37,500 on weekdays and Rp 52,500 during weekends and holidays.
The tariffs include a Rp 2,500 insurance fee.

Bromo Sunrise Tour - how cold can it get  (4 Answers)

After months of gathering information, I am finally ready to go to Mt Bromo (later this month). I would like to know how cold can it get early in the morning. I presume that I will be on top of Mt Penanjakan.

Seriously, winter clothing takes up too much space, LOL...

A few questions on, what else, Mt Bromo  (2 Answers)

I plan to visit Mt Bromo later this year. I would like to get advice from the experienced members here.

*I know someone has already posted a similar question in 2005, but I would like to listen to the latest replies*

I understand that most tourists who visit Bromo leave right after breakfast, but I am considering spending an additional night there. What other activities can I do? Can I visit nearby villages or the Ranu Pani lake?

Will I need to hire 4WD to get to the lake? Since I will be traveling alone, hiring a 4WD will be heavy on my budget.

(b) Shall I book accommodation before going to Bromo?

(c) In case I can't get accommodation in Cemoro Lawang, and instead have to stay in Ngadisari, is there any public transport between the two places?

Your help is appreciated :)

things to do around mt bromo  (2 Answers)

all packages I've seen going to the mt bromo area are only 1 night stay and leave the area right after the dawn tour. Is there really nothing else to do besides watching dawn? I would prefer to stay 2 nites and have time to rest and do something in the afternoon, but i'm not sure what...
