Tosari or Cemoro Lawang

Hi,

We will be landing from Singapore into Surabaya and heading for a tour to Mt Bromo.

Any recommendations whether we should stay at Tosari (as some operators recommended) or at Cemoro Lawang (which is the obvious choice).

Given that -

- we are a couple with a 5 yr old child

- we intend to take a car to and from Surabaya

- We intend to do the sunrise tour at Penanjakan and Bromo ...

- we would also like to stay an additional day to go around the local market/ meet locals/ relax (if that makes sense... is Tosari better or Cemoro Lawang better)?

many thanks

Hallo....

As locals Bromo, we suggest in Cemoro Lawang (the closest village to Mt Bromo and instantly be able to see Mt Bromo without use car).

You can get around the village on foot, also can see the original house Tengger Tribe (Tribe Bromo).

Inform you, Celebration Yadnya Kasada BROMO on July 31 to August 1,2015

Hi,

Not really unless it's a 4W drive. The track across the sea of sand is, well, very sandy and the ascent from it up to Tosari is steep and slippery. I'm also not sure the locals would let you do it anyway as they sort of protect the drivers who ferry visitors to and from CL and Tosari to Bromo and the sunrise point.

There are drivers in both Tosari and CL with Toyota Landcruisers so it doesn't matter which place you stay at although as mentioned CL is the obvious choice as there is more accommodation and you have crater views which you don't from Tosari.

Cheers
