Photographer's Note

This is one of the natural wonders of the world - the famous Bromo volcano of Java.

In fact you can speak of 4 volcanoes here. The biggest one is in fact the one I was on while taking this picture - Gunung Tenger (over 10km across its caldera, just try to imagine the eruption that created such a vast caldera...). You can see the opossite wall of the caldera back it the left. Inside Tenger caldera you can see two volcanoes - Gunung Batok (this cute small cone in front) and Gunung Bromo (the one with smoke). They are surrounded by the sea of clouds that covers the bottom of Tenger caldera. The fourth one is the distant Gunung Semeru - the highest volcano of Java.

Because sunrise is the best time to visit (later on the clouds rise and obscure the view), you can spend the night in a very atmospheric village of Camoro Lawang, perched right on the edge of Tenger caldera.
