Bromo, a historically active cone within the Tengger caldera, is one of Indonesia's most visited volcanoes. Legends portray the formation of Bromo, whose name means "fire." Visitors climb a broad stairway to the crater rim after reaching the foot of the cone from the rim of Tengger caldera by foot or horseback across the flat-bottomed Sandsea caldera.
