Indonesia's thrilling secret: Mt Bromo

17:30 AEST Sat Mar 23 2013

If you imagine that Indonesia is always hot and humid, Jason can tell you it's not! At 4am, on his way to see dawn breaking over Mt Bromo, he was freezing, but it said it was well worth all the shivering.

He joined a Gecko's Adventures tour to Tengger in East Java to visit the 2392 meter Mt Bromo, one of Indonesia’s most famous volcanoes. To this day it continually puffs out billowing clouds of sulphur.

Bromo actually sits within a super-volcano which has long run out of steam. The massive, ancient caldera surrounds Bromo and its non-active sister volcano, Mount Batok, and is known as the Sand Sea. Both volcanoes are within the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park.
