Mount Bromo is magical, thats what i always heard from people coming back from the trip. So i went there twice at august and october 2014 for a photography trip with my friends, indeed its magical. I think even my 101 years old grandpa can take nice pictures there. It was so good that i cannot think any way that you can fail. Especially at sunrise and sunset, the color of the sky was constantly changing. You gotta be early though if you wanna get VIP seat, 4am is too late. Dont forget to bring your winter clothes, as the weather at dawn can be close to 0 degrees sometimes.
