Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park (Indonesian: Taman Nasional Bromo Tengger Semeru; abbreviated as TNBTS) is a national park located in East Java, Indonesia, to the east of Malang and Lumajang, to the south of Pasuruan and Probolinggo, and to the southeast of Surabaya, the capital of East Java. It is the only conservation area in Indonesia that has a sand sea, the Tengger Sand Sea (Indonesian: Laut Pasir Tengger), across which is the caldera of an ancient volcano (Tengger) from which four new volcanic cones have emerged. 

This unique feature covers a total area of 5,250 hectares at an altitude of about 2,100 meters (6,900 ft). The massif also contains the highest mountain in Java, Mount Semeru (3,676 meters (12,060 ft)), four lakes and 50 rivers. It is named after the Tengger tribe. The explosion of the volcano that created the caldera, happened ca. 45.000 years ago, in an event similar to the Krakatau eruption.

The Tengger Sand Sea has been protected since 1919. The Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park was declared a national park in 1982.

Volcanism

The volcanic complex of Tengger forms a condition where a new caldera of volcano forms inside a larger and more ancient caldera. There are five volcanoes inside the Tengger Caldera: Mount Bromo (2,329 m), Mount Batok (2,470 m), Mount Kursi (2,581 m), Mount Watangan (2,661 m), and Mount Widodaren (2,650 m). Mount Batok is the only peak that is no longer active, and is covered in casuarina (Indonesian: cemara) trees. Mount Widodaren, located beside Mount Batok, contains the cave Widodaren, which is considered sacred by local people. 

The five volcanoes within the caldera are surrounded by a vast area of sand called the Tengger Sand Sea, which in turn is surrounded by a steep crater wall of the larger Tengger Caldera with height differences of about 200–600 meters (660–1,970 ft)

FREQUENLTY ASKED QUESTION (FAQ)

How do I get from Train Station or Surabaya airport to Lava View/Bromo Permai?

You can use a private vehicle.

Or there will be a shuttle vehicle that will pick you up at Surabaya Juanda Airport and Surabaya Gubeng Train Station at an additional cost. You can choose this additional facility when filling out the registration form. Vehicles will depart from the station or from the airport at 10:00 WIB and 15:00 WIB.

Do I have to be experienced at mountain trekking and be in a good shape?

Fjällräven Discovery Indonesia is no walk in the park. Walking 39,5km is not easy. But with the right preparation and a positive mindset, almost anyone can do it. You don’t need to have a lot of experience, more than a willingness to try. However, you should feel comfortable carrying a heavy backpack for days straight on bumpy tracks.

How should I prepare?

The main thing is to properly walk in your hiking boots and get used to carrying a heavy backpack. Start with easy walks in your local area and build up to over-night trips in more challenging terrain.

What equipment do I need?

We’ve put together a pack list for Fjällräven Discovery Indonesia. But basically, a backpack, tent, sleeping bag, stove and trekking clothes for both rain and sunshine. Don’t forget your flashlight and first aid kit either.

How will I find the way?

The trail is clearly marked with wood sign and another sign. But you should always have your map handy as a precaution. There are checkpoints every 5km or so where you can get help if you need it.

Is there a time limit?

Yes. You must complete your trip on Monday 17 July 2023. The Finishing Point counter will close at 16.00 WIB, if you arrive after 16.00 WIB, your Trekking Pass can be stamped and collect medals in Lava View during the Closing Dinner. There is no time limit for you to reach each campsite, but arriving before dark will make it easier to set up your tent.

Where can I camp?

We have prepared a camping site for you, you can find out the location on the map that we have shared. Gathering with others will warm you up even more and increase your sense of friendship with other participants.

Can I stay in the mountain cabins instead?

No, you have to sleep in the tent. The same tent that you or your trekking partner brought with you. Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park at night will be quite cold.

Do I have to stop at each Checkpoint?

Yes. Your Trekking Pass will be stamped at each checkpoint. Each checkpoint is staffed.

Are trekking poles a good idea?

Yep, we certainly think so. They help balance on slippery sections or make going up and down hills easier too. We recommend a telescopic pole that you can adjust. You can then shorten it when going up the hill and lengthen it when going down. Shock absorbing poles are also a great idea for long distances.
