What To Prepare for Mt. Bromo Tour
Are you thinking of booking Bromo Tour Package? Well, here are a couple of things that you need to prepare before you go to Mt. Bromo
- Bring Warm Stuff/ Winter Wear
Indonesia is a tropical country, which means there’s no winter. However, this is Mount Bromo we’re talking about, and we’re pretty sure you’re planning on seeing the world-famous sunrise. The temperature in the early morning or before sunrise, can be as low as 5 to 10 Degrees Celsius. Temperature in the late morning and noon time will be around 15-20 Degrees Celsius. So If you want to see the sunrise comfortably and not shivering while trying to take photos, wear what you would in Europe would during the winter. A layer of undergarments, with a sweater and winter jacket on top, as well as a scarf around your neck is a good start. Socks and covered shoes are mandatory as well. As are leggings or jeans, on top of tights if possible.
If you forget to buy or bring along winter wear to a volcano, such items are available at stores in and around Mount Bromo. You can rent or buy equipment, whichever you prefer, although it’s best to bring your own.
- Bring Toilet Paper
The toilet in Mount Bromo are nice, considering they are on a volcano, however Indonesians typically don’t use toilet paper. Instead, they just use water and soap. So, don’t forget to bring toilet paper for your own personal use if you’re not used to it.
- Bring an Umbrella or Raincoat
The weather can occasionally turn unfriendly, even during the dry season of June to September. Just in case things go sour, which is not impossible, bring an umbrella or a raincoat to get prepared if rainy.
- Bring Mask
After eruption few years ago, now Bromo Caldera is very dusty. When we climbing to the top of the volcano we will crossing the sea of sand and on the dry season the volcanic ashes flying round us. As we know that volcanic ashes of Bromo crater consist lapilli and silica can be harmful for your respitory, wear the mask during climbing is a must.
If someone has breathing problem asthma, we really recommended to bring sprayer.
- Bring Sunblock
Lastly, bring sunblock. The temperatures might get freezing cold at night and dawn, but we enjoyed typical Indonesian heat in the afternoon. With little to no cover trees around specially when we trekking to the top of Mt. Bromo, We were grateful for the sunblock someone brought along.
