Michal,
you can't imagine how jealous I'm for this shot. I already saw several presentations of this place here at TE and everytime I'm caught in deep awe. Wonderful, simply unique! Probably one of the most beautiful places on the earth. How do you get there? What kind of infrastructure is there to get to the place? Can you drive up there with a rented car and stay overnight?
Peter

Hi,
with your own transport (eg rented car) you can get as far as Cemoro Lawang village on the edge of the outer (Tengger) caldera. There are a couple of places to stay overnight there, you will have no problem with that. To get to the place this photo was taken from (Mt. Penanjakan, also on the edge of Tengger Caldera), you have to take a local car with driver - first, this is a NP and you can't do otherwise, and second the drive from Cemoro Lawang to Penanjakan includes going down to the caldera and up again, and in the bottom of caldera you drive in complete darkness and thick fog (those clouds you see in the picture cover the bottom of the caldera), so only local drivers know the way. After seeing this view they take you across the caldera to Gunung Bromo (the one with smoke coming from), which you can climb. You should be back in Cemoro Lawang by 10am, and you can travel on, eg to Bali (we managed to reach Ubud on Bali around 9pm the same day, although by a minivan with driver, not on our own).

greetings
