THE TRIP TO THE BROMO is very easy, as it can be done on horse-back (or per sedan chair) almost to the crater ridge. The last 300 or 400 yards must be done on foot, but there are bamboo ladders to facilitate the climb.
Suddenly the traveller looks into the 670 ft deep, funnelshaped crater, whence thick colums of vapour generally rise with a terrible noise.
