Use the quicklinks below to jump to the desired section regarding transport in and around Gunung Bromo.


Access to Cemoro Lawang and Ngadisari is via a steep road from Probolinggo. Public mini-buses ply this route until about 15:00, at which time your chances of catching one dramatically decreases. The fare is 25,000 rupiah and buses wait until at least 10 passengers are on board before departing, meaning that a wait of over an hour is not uncommon.

For those trapped in Probolinggo after around 15:00, ojeks will make the journey to Cemoro Lawang for 75,000 rupiah, luggage and all. The same system works in reverse from Cemoro Lawang to Probolinggo.

From Malang, catch a local angkot to the Arjosari bus terminal (2,500 rupiah) for a connecting angkot to Tumpang (1hr/5,000 rupiah). In Tumpang, ojeks are available for 80,000 rupiah to take passengers to Cemoro Lawang or Ranu Pane but be aware that the road is steep and you will need to dismount regularly as the motorbikes aren't strong enough to make it up with passengers. Jeeps also depart from Tumpang for the Tengger Caldera and charge 60,000 rupiah per person, but services are irregular and it is advisable to arrive in Tumpang early in the morning to wait for a departing jeep.
