Things To Prepare Before Enjoying The Mount Bromo Ijen Crater Tour

July 18, 2022

As you probably know, Mount Bromo offers thousands of things to explore. From its whispering sea of sand to the majestic sunrise, everything is accessible with the Mount Bromo Ijen Crater tour. However, there are several things you need to prepare before you visit Mount Bromo for the first time.

Warm  clothing

Despite being located in a tropical country, most locations you’re going to visit in Bromo are located at more than 1,000 m of elevation. This makes the air and weather incredibly cold. So, if you’re not susceptible to the cold, please consider wearing warm clothing. In general, thick jackets or sweaters are always good options. In addition, you can also bring a pair of warm gloves and thick socks.

Umbrella or raincoat

If you visit Mount Bromo between October to February, the weather can turn unfriendly very quickly. Just in case things go sour, which is highly probable, bring an umbrella or raincoat for protection against rain. After all, getting stuck in one destination without being able to move due to the rain is never fun.

Face mask

After a major eruption in 2019, the Bromo Caldera has become very dusty with volcanic ash. The volcanic ash will especially be troublesome if you’re planning to cross the sea of sand during the dry season. On top of that, Bromo’s volcanic ash consists of lapilli and silica, which is very harmful to respiratory organs. So, be sure to bring face masks before taking the Mount Bromo Ijen Crater tour.


One thing that every visitor would agree on is that Mount Bromo is incredibly sunny and hot. The temperature may still feel very cold during the day, but the sun will still burn you. On top of that, due to the lack of trees and proper shade, escaping the heat of the sun will be impossible. So, consider bringing sunblock before taking the Mount Bromo Ijen Crater tour for 3 days.

Online booking

When visiting Bromo, everything will become much easier if you book everything in advance. So, if you’re planning to enjoy Mount Bromo for a few days, it is advised to book the hotel and lodging at least a week prior. Besides accommodation, you may need to book your mode of transportation as well.

So, those are all the things you need to prepare before taking the Mount Bromo Ijen Crater tour. Remember that your trip to Mount Bromo will become much easier if you prepare everything in advance. So, prepare anything you need to bring or book to properly enjoy Mount Bromo.
