Arrived at the top, we look down into a steep crater to a depth of at least 200 metres, without a sharply-defined bottom. Far below in the depth, lumaroles and solfatara are boiling and foaming; blue sulphurous fumes rise to the surface, whilst small streams of ashes are hurled with a whizzing, rumbling noise along the smooth walls and back again into the depth. It is possible, but not easy to walk along a small upper ledge entirely round the crater. Having reached the highest point, 011 the side ol the Segara-wedi Loi', we can from there look into this latter crater bottom, which forms a sand sea in the shape of a crescent.
1 hose who wish to see as much as possible of the Tengger mountains within a short space of time, would do well after having ascended the Bromo, to push on immediately, across the inner wall of the Tjemara-Lawang, to Ngadisari, the highest village of the Tengger, where a rest-house (pasangrahan) affords a good opportunity for passing the night. 1 he little village is splendidly situated on a small mountain ridge formed by the rivulets that run into the large crevice of the Tjemara-Lawang, and have dug out ravines, which admit of a view into the structure of the deeper layers of the volvanic mass, that consist of a bright coloured lava stone, interspersed with soft tufa. If not too fatigued, we may, after having partaken at Ngadisari of the customary rice-meal (rijst tafel), ride on to Soekapoera, along the beautiful path that follows with precipitous slopes and bold leaps, the ravine of the rivulet or brook, the Prahoe. To the left, we first have the huge piles'of the Goenoeng-Penandjaan and the Argawoelan ; next the latter suddenly protrudes as if it would obstruct the road, but the path opens itself a way through a narrow crevice at the foot of the mounthin, to descend into the valley of Soekapoera which gets gradually wider.
The tjemaras give way to all kinds of wild foliage that, in turn, but too soon, change into extensive coffee plantations. However, the delightful coolness of these dark-green plantations somewhat compensates the tired horseman for their monotonous gloom.
For /6.a we hire a cariage (which must be ordered beforehand) by means of which we can reach Probolinggo before sunset.
