Top Four Spots To See The Bromo Milky Way

July 29, 2022

Mount Bromo is one of the best places where you can see the Milky Way Galaxy in Indonesia. For that reason, thousands of visitors from different countries have visited this East Javanese volcano to capture this rare phenomenon. If you’re planning to see the Bromo Milky Way, there are four spots where you can see the natural phenomenon at its best.

Pananjakan 1 Summit

Pananjakan 1 is the highest summit of Mount Bromo at 2,770 meters above sea level. Besides being the best spot to see the sunrise, Pananjakan 1 is also the best spot to see the Milky Way galaxy. In most cases, experienced hikers prefer to reach the summit on foot. However, a 4×4 vehicle is also available for regular visitors who want to witness the majestic Milky Way. Regardless of your preferred method, be sure to wear warm clothes to combat the chilling night.

Panajakan 2 Summit

Penanjakan 2, also known as the Seruni Viewpoint, is the second tallest point of Mount Bromo at 2.436 meters above sea level. The summit is located in Cemoro Lawang Village of Probolinggo Regency. Despite being relatively lower than Penanjakan 1, the lowest temperature is relatively similar at 3-5 degrees Celsius. Like Penanjakan 1, this spot is also accessible via a 4×4 vehicle.

Bromo Love Hill

Bromo Love Hill, formally known as Pasar Agung, is the third most popular spot to see the Bromo Milky Way. Besides being a popular place to see the rare phenomenon, the hill is one of the most frequently visited places for traditional ceremonies. Locals also believe that Pasar Agung is the place where Roro Anteng and Joke Seger, two legendary figures in Bromo, met for the first time.

Bromo Love Hill is located at 2,680 meters above sea level. So, expect the temperature to be very cold.

Mentigen Hill

Mentigen Hill is located in Ngadisari Village of Probolinggo Regency. Located at 2,300 meters above sea level, Mentigen Hill is widely known as the best spot to see the Milky Way if you don’t want to spend hours reaching the summit. Despite being the lowest of the four spots, Mentigen Hill still offers a breathtaking view of the Milky Way and the golden sunrise. So, if you don’t prefer hiking, Mentigen Hill can be an excellent choice.
