Starting September 6, tourism in Bromo was re-opened through the entrance in Pasuruan. However, tourists are still required to comply with several health protocol provisions.
“Starting September 6, 2021, the Bromo entrance to Pasuruan will be opened. The opening of the Pasuruan gate is in accordance with PPKM level 2 regulations for Pasuruan Regency,”said Syarif Hidayat, Public Relations of Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park (TNBTS), Monday (6/9) via detikcom.
The opening of Bromo tours is only through the Pasuruan entrance, because the paths in Malang, Probolinggo, and Lumajang regencies are still at Level 3 and Level 4. While Pasuruan Regency is already at level 2.
Please note that climbing Mount Semeru has not been opened. This opening only applies to three viewpoints, namely Penanjakan, Bukit Kedaluh, and Bukit Cinta.
As reported by Kompas.com, the three sites each limit the capacity of tourist visits per day, including Pananjakan for 222 people, Bukit Kedaluh for 107 people, and Bukit Cinta for 31 people per day. Tourists can order admission tickets online.
In addition to limiting tourist visits, the rules for opening Bromo tours also require a minimum of the first dose of vaccination, using the PeduliLindungi application, and always obeying health protocols.
