    Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park is the only protected area in Indonesia with a 10-kilometer-long sandy sea called Tengger, from which four conical volcanoes have appeared. The conical volcanoes are Mount Batok (2,470 m), Mount Kursi (2,581 m), Mount Watangan (2,661 m) and Mount Widodaren (2,650 m). However, Mount Bromo is still the only active volcano. The temperature on the top of Mount Bromo is about 5-18 degrees Celsius. Towards the south of the park is a highland plateau divided by valleys and decorated with several beautiful lakes reaching the foot of Mount Semeru.
