Needless to say, this volcano is an incredible sight

Bromo Whispering Sand
There is a bowl-shaped caldera with sand and five peaks. When Bromo was not that popular yet, people would often hear whispers while traveling through the dunes. The experience was so special that many people reported the same phenomenon with the fantastic whispering sands of Bromo. It’s a perfect photo spot with the steep ridges of the Mount Widodaren volcano in the background.

The Yadnya Kasada Ceremony
Yadnya Kasada is a ritual sacrifice to the crater of Mount Bromo which is held once a year every Kasada month on the 14th day of the traditional Hindu Tengger calendar. Various offerings, from food, and agricultural products to livestock such as chickens and goats, are floated into the crater as an offering to the Lord.

The people of Tengger hold prayers at the Luhur Poten Temple which is located at the foot of Mount Bromo and then throw offerings into the crater. Usually, Kasada is held between March – June.
