One of the natural panoramas you can find on the Mount Bromo visit are the sand dunes in Mount Bromo big caldera. Actually nothing special about sand dunes, since these phenomena occur throughout the world, from coastal and lakeshore plains to arid desert regions. One thing that makes Mount Bromo Sand Dunes unique is that this sand dunes are inside the volcano caldera! The caldera of Mount Bromo is so huge, with three tops Puncak Batok, Puncak Semeru, and the crater of volcano that we even forget that we are inside the volcano caldera.

The sun begins to show the power of its light. Blowing wind blew the dust of sand that spread wide. At that time, the time was still showing at 08.00 pm. But the sunlight was already very hot here in Bromo. The air temperature is about 35-38 degrees.

I can feel the sand as the cars Bromo Jeep enter the Bromo area, much like the Paris-Dakar rally arena, especially when you came at dry season. Glasses and masks became a “safety-one” that you should wear.

He is the first director who created the origin of the Whispering Sand (Pasir Berbisik in Bahasa). In this place he made a shooting location of a movie whose title is sand whispered.
