Sky Watch: Stairways to Bromo Peak

The stairs lead visitors to Bromo Peak and Crater (East Java, Indonesia). Mount Bromo is still active (2392 meters above sea level) and once in a while erupts sulfur gas.

When you’re visiting Bromo Peak, always wear your mask. It will protect you from dust and sulfur gas. Don’t force yourself when climbing the stairs. Take several breaks during your walk upstairs. Though the smell of sulfur gas has made me dizzy, nausea, and hard to breath at first, putting wet handkerchief on my nose solved the problems.

The sulfur gas may come out suddenly, so preparing wet towel or handkerchief is necessary. I have reached the top of the Bromo peak and seen the crater. I'll share the crater next week.

For those with fear of height, walking down the stairs can be a problem. Allow other people in front of you to block the view that may cause you panic. Focus on every step you make and look at your feet only. The stair surface can be covered by sand so be careful every time you make a step.

Sorry, I don't think I would like to climb up there. You are a brave soul to take the photograph. Did you climb up there?

Those steep stairs look like quite a challenge. But the view, even from the lower level, is extraordinary. Great photos.
