Backpacking Mount Bromo & Ijen : Probolinggo to Banyuwangi

Cemara Lawang to Probolinggo

To get back from Cemara Lawang to Probolinggo, just followed the same instruction on our previous post : Backpacking Mount Bromo & Ijen Without A Tour : Probolinggo to Cemara Lawang (Mt. Bromo) but in reverse way. The bison will wait for passenger who coming down from Bromo, we were in a hurry at that time so we went down from Cemara Lawang by hiring ojek (motorbike taxi) that cost us IDR 150.000 per person.

Executive First Class Train

By Train

The best train to get to Banyuwangi from Probolinggo is Mutiara Timur Siang, as it arrived before evening so that we could take a rest little bit longer to recover our stamina before going to Mt. Ijen. The second option is getting Sritanjung, but arriving Banyuwangi quite late evening so very short sleep before going to Mt. Ijen.

By Public Bus

From Bayuangga bus station in Probolinggo, just take a direct bus to go to Banyuwangi. There was 2 different direction for the bus going to Banyuwangi, north and south direction. North direction bus will go trough Situbondo - Baluran - End up Ketapang Port, it is further to the city center. It was fine if you have hotels nearby the port. We stay at Kampung Osing Inn that located quite at the center, so we took bus from south direction that go trough Jember - End up Brawiajaya Bus Terminal in Banyuwangi.

Bus travel would take time about 5 hours drive, that would cost approximately IDR 80.000 per person. A hassle came up to us that the bus not going directly to Banyuwangi, it stopped in Jember than we need to change to another bus that made us wait for about 2 hours to get to next bus to Banyuwangi.
