BACKPACKING TO MALANG : KALIWATU RAFTING, COBAN RONDO, AND MOUNT BROMO

10:25 PM



Hi All.
Hope you have a very good day!

This time I would like to share about my trip to Mount Bromo. Back in April, My workmates and I have a trip to Mount Bromo. We planned it in around January and have about three months to prepare everything.

We go to Malang use Matarmaja Train. It is an Economic Train that depart from Pasar Senen Station in Jakarta to Malang Station. The Train depart at 2pm and we arrived at Malang next morning. Actually, this is also the first time I go to Malang. Yes, I go to collage in Yogyakarta, but I have not visit Malang yet in my life. Call me pity~ But hey, it is better to late than never. By the way, Train tickets cost us 65.000 rupiah from Jakarta to Malang.




After arrived at Malang, we have our breakfast and then we rent a public transportation to go around Malang. It cost us 600.000 rupiah (for 12 peoples). Our very first destination is Kaliwatu Rafting because we want to have some rafting experience in Batu. I am sorry that I forget how much it costs us, but I will try to remember and update it later. The rafting experience in very good. For your information, Kaliwatu Rafting is not an extreme Rafting. It is more likely a happy rafting for me. The Rafting guide even told us that many people usually bring their little children while rafting. Do not worry about the lunch, because Kaliwatu Rafting also could provide you the lunch. We spent about four or five hours in Kaliwatu Rafting and then we headed to our next destination.

We then go to Coban Rondo Waterfall, It is also one of famous tourism object in Batu, Malang. Here is the pictures :

After that, we also go to Batu Night Spectacular, it was so crowded. I was so tired yet happy that time. This low budget backpacking makes me so excited. We then headed to Alun-Alun Kota Malang to have our dinner and some snacks before we go to the Guesthouse to rest.

The Guesthouse is located near Mount Bromo, it is only 300.000 rupiah for 12 peoples which is so cheap. It is also very comfortable and the owner is so nice.

At 1am in the morning, we have to wake up from our sleep and then prepare to go to Mount Bromo. We will go using a Jeep, and it took about two or three hours to arrived at the Penanjakan to wait the sunrise.

We then headed to Mount Bromo to go hiking. I never be allowed to go hiking, because my mom always worry to much. So, this is the first time I go to 'fun' hiking in my life. I said 'fun' because I only have to take a stairs to climb up the mountain.

At around 11am, we finished our hiking and take a rest before we go to our Jeep to go to Guesthouse. We then have our lunch in the Guesthouse and prepare everything to headed back to Jakarta.

So it all my experience in Malang. Thank you for reading :)
