IntroductionSurrounding the spectacular Semeru Volcano, Bromo-Tengger-Semeru park lies 70 mi/112 km southeast of Surabaya. It was closed temporarily in mid-2004 because of volcanic eruptions and was briefly put on heightened alert in 2006 and again in 2011. Check its status before visiting. Attractions include excellent hiking (the best time is April-November), interesting mountain villages and crater lakes. Guides and horses may be hired for a trip into the caldera. The sunrise viewed from the top is a must, but be sure to take some warm clothes—it gets very cold at the summit. Phone 341-491-828. http://www.bromotenggersemeru.org.
