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.
