Please Help Plan my Itinerary to Indonesia!

Hello all!
I'll be spending some time in Bali this October 2016 & would love to visit Yogyakarta for a day to see the Goa Jomblang cave & then off to Probolinggo to trek Mount Bromo. My question for you is this: will there be time enough to leave Bali & arrive inYogyakarta & Probolinggo all within 4 days? What would be my most efficient way of traveling between these areas? It looks like catching a flight from Denpasar to Yogyakarta would be the quickest route & then from Yogyakarta to Probolinggo via personal driver, but can someone who is familiar with these areas please offer some guidance? This is my first trip to Indonesia & I want to make the most of it by spending my time efficiently. Any suggestions are appreciated! Happy travels!

hey, technically it's possible, denpasar to jogya flight (3 hours minus 1 hour time difference), 3-4 hours round trip to caves, 6 hour drive yogja to probolinggo, bromo trekking ???, 6 hour drive from bromo to denpasar... the question is why?

Sounds like your trying to fit too much in. Yogyakarta should you go there you'll want to see in and of itself. Don't rush Yogy is a great place culturally and just so different than Bali, except for the traffic. I was there and spent 4 days there and loved it. I went to Borobudur Nirwana sunrise, which isnt' all that, but the view is spectatular.
