bromo volcano


Bromo Volcano and Pura Luhur Poten, the Bromo Hindu temple (Java, Indonesia).­

Bromo is one of the small volcanic cones in the Tengger caldera, and it can be reached in a couple of hours walk from the village of Cemoro Lawang.­

The flat and dusty Tengger caldera is called Lautan Pasir (Sea of Sand).­ The entire region is covered with thin volcanic ash from recent eruptions of the Bromo Volcano.­

Behind the temple, on the slope of the volcano, you can see the Bromo Stairs that reach the crater edge (thin dark vertical line on this photo).­
