A great loop that follows crater ridges inside the main Tengger Cadera. Towards the back end of the loop, the trails are rather faint. A few recommendations for anybody doing this loop:
1) The eastern rim of the Bromo Crater is a little exposed, so if you are not comfortable with a narrow trail on somewhat loose ash, then approach the loop along the western crater rim and go back that way.
2) There is no water along the route.
3) Stay on the ridges! Before Mt Kursi, what looks like the main trail goes down into a very large plain (this trail would make a shorter loop with several possible variations), the trail that continues on the ridge is a little hard to spot.
4) Before Mt Watangan my track leaves the ridge for a while - that was a mistake - just stay on the ridge, it has a good trail.
