🌺🌼🌻 morning batu .... the cool, fresh hill town of batu was a retreat for the dutch in colonial days. similarly, these days wealthy local business people from surabaya and malang have weekend houses up here whilst the less fortunate visit on a more casual basis. the area is also a major agricultural centre with apple orchards everywhere and a large number of orchid nurseries.
until 2001, batu was administratively part of malangbut since that time it has been a municipal town in its own right.
the entire area of batu, including selecta(specifically constructed as a tourism venue in 1928) is surrounded by mountains and hills. mount welirang and mount arjuna (gunung welirang, gunung arjuna) are at the north. to the south is gunung ["mount"] panderman, to the west lies gunung banyak [a paragliding site often used for national- and international-level competitions], and to the east is the diminutive gunung wukir.
batu, including selecta and the surrounding villages, makes for a charming place with much that will appeal to visitors and a couple of days exploring this beautiful area is a worthy part of any visit to java. 🍁

🌴🌹🌺 as a lot of people know lombok has numerous beaches across its coast, most of them are very beautiful and some of them are still untouched. in the southern coast of lombok, we can find some iconic beaches, one of them is tanjung aan beach, the birthplace of the legendary princess mandalika. located approximately 75 km south of mataram, it takes about one hour and a half drive from the city, and about 10 minutes from kuta beach. it is not really far from the main city and the road to the beach is very well built although the road is a little rough when we get closer to tanjung aan beach. the access to the area is quite easy, and can be reached by cars or motorbikes. we could see beautiful farms and villages along the road while enjoying the view of nearby beaches and coconut trees.
this beach faces directly to indian ocean, and the coast is 2 km long. one thing that makes tanjung aan beach is unique is the sand, the sand has bigger grain and people often called it “pepper sand”. tanjung aan beach is a perfect place for those who enjoy to snorkel and to swim, because the waves are quite calm and the depth of the sea is quite shallow. if you don’t own or forget your snorkeling equipment, there are local boats which provide necessities for snorkeling or a tour across the coast. during the afternoon, the waves are getting higher so surfers can go to tanjung aan beach to try the waves out. 🌺
there is a reason the sunrise trek to the summit of mt.batur (1717 meters) is so popular. besides experiencing the awesome beauty of an active volcano, trekking in the cool, early morning darkness obscures the difficulty of the challenging hike (torches, hiking sticks and wet weather gear supplied, if needed). the dark also helps to focus walkers to do the one to two hour ascent making it feel less difficult. the bonus is arriving in time to witness a glorious sunrise and experience thestunning morning views of the surrounding crater and lake. 🍁
mount bromo which stands tall at 2329 m is the most iconic and the most hiked mountain in indonesia. this is one of the top 10 things to do in java and rightly so. the mountain beckons majestically despite having the entire top blown off and with a crater inside that keeps spewing off-white sulphurous smoke.
mount bromo is still one of the most active volcanoes in the world and there are areas that are blocked off from tourists due to its imminent danger. it sits inside the massive tengger caldera (volcanic crater with a diameter approximately 10km), surrounded by the laut pasir (sea of sand) of fine volcanic sand.
after an easy hike, travelers are awarded a breathtaking and ethereal landscape during the sunrise.
myth has it that mount bromo is significant to the tengger people who believe that the site is where their brave prince sacrificed his life for his family. to appease the gods, the people will offer food and money by throwing it into the crater of the volcano once a year during annual kasada (or kasodo) festival.
where is it
mount bromo is situated inside bromo-tengger-semeru national park, beside mount semeru at east java, indonesia. 🌹
