Written By Nanda Rani Herlina


Bromo Tengger National Park is the most desired destinations of Indonesia and international hikers. It has extraordinary trekking landscape and will give mount climber unforgettable experience. Therefore, this Semeru Trekking will be a superb challenge in the heart of every hiker.

From the top of Mount Semeru, you will be able to view magnificent scenery of pine forest. You will get lost in the natural outfit of the trekking path. In the middle of the journey, you will be able to appreciate serene atmosphere in Ranu Kumbolo Lake. The true adventure is begun.


Day 1 Surabaya – Malang – Ranu pane

To start Mount Semeru trekking package an air-conditioned vehicle picks you up at Surabaya airport. We suggest that your flight shall land in the morning time (around 8 a.m). The car then transfers you directly to Malang for a thorough medical checkup before trekking.

As a Standard Operating Procedure, the medical checkup can save you from unexpected hazards. The car is changed with a 4 WD jeep, and it drives up and down to Pane, the closest village at the foot of Mount Semeru. 2.5 hours driving to Ranu Pane through countryside lets you enjoy apple plantation and tropical rainforest.

Arriving at the first base camp of Ranu Pane, take a rest and spend one night at a camp. The place is about 2,100 meters above sea level.

Day 2 Ranu Pane – Ranu Kumbolo – Kalimati

Trekking tour to Ranu Kumbolo starts after having breakfast. It takes 13 kilometers to arrive there (2,400 meters above sea level). At noon, while preparing the lunch, you can enjoy the beauty of Ranu Kumbolo Lake or take some photographs. The lake has pure water and if you are lucky, you can take pictures of wild grouse flying in the sky. Further trekking to Kalimati will be steeper and harder, but don’t miss the magnificent lake behind you from the spot where you stand. Kalimati is at 2,700 meters above sea level when you will have your dinner and stay overnight in an open savannah. It is the best place to monitor Mount Semeru and see stars in the night sky. Accommodation available at this high spot is a tent.

Day 3 Kalimati – Mahameru – Ranu Pane – Bromo

On day 3, you are required to wake up at midnight to start trekking to Arcapada (2,900 meters above sea level). A headlamp is mandatory for this night view trekking. Trekking to the summit of Mount Semeru called Mahameru at 3,676 meters above sea level takes 3-4 hours through steep sand dune. All goods you have shall be left in Arcapada or Kalimati to make your move easy and light in weight.

Make yourself enjoy the sunrise from the top, but it depends on the weather. Sunrise may be blocked by an occasional eruption from the vent locally named as Jonggring Saloka Crater. You shall stand back minimum 500 meters away from the vent. After witnessing the sunrise, go back to Kalimati to take a rest and have breakfast, and further walk down to Ranu Kumbolo for lunch.

Afterwards, you will leave Semeru area and transfer to Surabaya or Malang.
