ITINERARY : From Yogyakarta to Bali, passing by tea plantations, Mt Bromo & Ijen crater.
Day 1: A 5 hour drive to Ngawi, at the foot of Mt Lawu. We walk through the nearby tea plantation and visit the factory. We learn the secrets of drinking tea from the master himself. We stay the night in a unique home stay overlooking the rice fields.
Day 2: An 8 hour drive to Cemoro Lawang near Bromo. We walk into sand sea of the Tengger crater and enjoy the vast emptiness of the area at sunset.Empty of tourists, jeeps and motorbikes. Definitely the best moment to grasp the power of nature.
Day 3: Early morning, we walk or take a horse to enjoy the sunrise of Bromo. Late morning we continue to Kalisat, and stay in a small guesthouse in the coffee plantations.
Day 4: Morning hike (3 km up) to the stunning Ijen crater, which has a stunning turquoise colored crater lake. It is mind blowing to witness the very labor intensive sulfur mining with men carrying heavy sulfur laden baskets up and down the volcano.
Early afternoon we take you to the harbour, to catch the ferry to Bali.
