On the edge of an empty caldera, Wurung Crater is surrounded by circular trees, people here call it Bukit Cicin.
When I sat on the edge of the cliff and looked in all directions this place was similar to Mount Bromo, the difference is that this tour does not have a sea of sand there is only a stretch of savanna grass.

Tips When Traveling in the Wurung Bondowoso Crater
If you want to stop by here, I recommend using a private vehicle, because the tourist location of Wurung Crater is not passed by public transportation and is quite far from settlements. Before leaving, check your vehicle first, because the road you will be passing is up and down and a little windy.
If you come here during the rainy season, come early in the morning so you can see the sun rise and it won't rain when you get home. If it's the dry season, come in the afternoon so you can see the sunset and the atmosphere is not too hot.
Because after passing the parking lot there is no shelter, so if it's hot during the day, if it rains it's all wet he he heeee.
Please lower the trash, because the tour manager has not provided a trash can around the stairs to the top of the WURUNG Crater, especially bringing home plastic waste.
Plastic waste is very difficult to decompose, so please lower your trash, friends, so that tourism in the Wurung Bondowosa Crater can maintain its natural and beauty.
Don't just be a connoisseur of nature, but try to protect nature and protect nature by not littering and if possible, friends, reduce the use of plastic waste.
