From Banyuwangi - Probolinggo - Surabaya [Summarry Report]




Today we will share travel tips about How To Get To Kawah Ijen, Probolinggo and Surabaya From Banyuwangi, just to be remembered we took our homestay Kampung Osing Inn as a starting point due to its location which is close to Karangasem Train Station. d stay in our lovely homestay "Kampung Osing Inn", if you haven't stay there yet, contact us now to secure your room.


Kampung Osing Inn To Kawah Ijen

Kawah Ijen take about 1-1.5 hours drive from Kampung Osing Inn, the easiest way to get there just book a package. We organize shared tour with our other guests at affordable and reasonable price, if you book a private tour in advance we will give you some discount and bonus.




You also could just hike Kawah Ijen by yourself by hire car and self ride by motorbike. Self ride could be the cheapest way to get but it less safe for riding midnight and exhausted condition after tough hike. It is possible but not safety enough for your first time motorbike ride, for more detail about how to get there independently read out our previous post above link.


Kampung Osing Inn To Probolinggo By Train

The easiest way getting to Probolinggo from Banyuwangi is by taking train, there are three trains which is going to Probolinggo.

Sritanjung Train

It has departure time quite early in the morning at 06.45 am, it is not possible to get to this train if you are doing Kawah Ijen unless you have to spend another night in Banyuwangi. This Sritanjung train also could take you to Surabaya and Yogyakarta.

This train will arrive in Lempuyangan Train Station in Yogyakarta, it is not the main station which take about 30 minutes taxi drive to the center. Arrival time at Yogyakarta around 8.30 pm.

Mutiara Timur Siang Train 

This train is the best option to get to Probolinggo, mostly you will arrive back from Kawah Ijen roughly at 8.00 am. For the price is a bit more expensive than Sritanjung Train as it has Business and Executive Class train.

Probowangi Train

This is the latest and cheapest train options, but it will be arriving at Probolinggo in the evening estimated arrival time at 06.30 pm. We do not recommend this train unless you do not have other option due to its late arrival. You will have a difficulties to find public bus to get to Cemara Lawang, the latest bus available until 04.00 pm.



Probolinggo To Surabaya By Train
Using the same trains available above to get to Surabaya, what you need to do is getting down from Cemara Lawang on time.

Tips : Do not book your train ticket in advance, just book it on the spot. Public bus used to having delay to go to Probolinggo.


Sritanjung Train 
Departure from Probolinggo train station at 11.00 am, it is a bit rush.  You have to manage your Bromo trek wisely, moreover if you intend to take Sritanjung Train to get to Yogyakarta. It is better to check seat availability first at the station and book the ticket later on the spot.

Mutiara Timur Siang Train
It is a better option if you just want to go to Surabaya from Probolinggo, it departs from Probolinggo at about 01.00 pm. Have enough time to explore Mt. Bromo without being worried about missing the train.

Exploring Surabaya, the first destination is House of Sampoerna, call them in advance to book free tourism bus to get around Surabaya most historic places in town and it is totally free.

As one of most popular tourist attractions in Banyuwangi, Kawah Ijen is a must to be visited. There are many options to do Kawah Ijen, the easiest way is going to book the tour in some operators. Going by tour probably be the best option for traveler that want to have everything well organized. 

Some travelers are prefer to do it by their own way for some reasons like tight budget or want to have time flexibility for their visit. Independent travel to Kawah Ijen could be challenging as it is not as easy as written on your Lonely Planet Book. Here we write about the options to do Kawah Ijen Independently without a tour.


1. Motorbike Rent Self Riding - IDR 75.000 / 24 Hours


Going by your own motorbike could be the cheapest way to get to Kawah Ijen, we can't say it would be easy to do that but practically it is doable. Most of our guests who went by motorbike riding found their way easily.
Attention : Along the way to Kawah Ijen is only one straight road until Paltuding Pos, practically you will not get lost. What you need to do is follow the path and signs.
Tips : The path to Kawah Ijen was good with pavement, but it will be dark along the way, steep at some points, and easily land slide happen at rainy season. For your own safety please make sure you are get used to ride motorbike on Indonesian road, you do not have vision difficulties, and make sure your motorbike at its best performance.

2. Motorbike Riding (Ojek) - IDR 200.000 (Go and Back)

For travelers who do not able to ride motorbike by yourself and still want to do Kawah Ijen with budget friendly, try to get the by Ojek. Somebody will ride the motorbike along the way then you just sit on the back of him.
Attention : Make sure you get an ojek rider that familiar about Kawah Ijen, for your safety ask him to provide you good condition helmet. Finally do not pay him in advance, only pay when you arrive back safely.
Tips : Before going back from Kawah Ijen, please take a break for a while unless to drink coffee or coke. It will help you to stay awake during your way back. It would be dangerous if you fall asleep on the motorbike.

3. Sulfur Truck Hitch Hiking - IDR ???

There is another challenging way to go Kawah Ijen, hitch hike to sulfur miner truck. This truck available mostly in the morning about 7 am, it used to transfer sulfur workers. It will depart from sulfur company called PT. Candi Ngrimbi that located at a last village at the base of Kawah Ijen called Desa Tamansari. A second truck from Tamansari available about noon around 11 am, for sulfur worker the company charge them for 10.000 IDR per person. As you are a foreigner you could negotiate with the driver how much money they want, because there is no fix price. Treat them few pack of cigarette also worth for them.
Attention : The truck has no fix departure schedule, as it really depend on site condition. The schedule we provided was as a result of short interview with the workers. Mostly there is no truck on Friday. 
 Tips : For coming back from Kawah Ijen you could take the same truck, it will depart about noon but sometimes could be late as it wait the truck full of sulfur.
