Things you might miss out on if you travel to Java on your own

Please read next information very carefully

Let’s share some thoughts regarding the independent visit of Bromo and Kawah Ijen

We are a team of adventurers, and it goes without saying that we love to travel on our own. However, when discovering an unknown and potentially accident-prone site for the first time, caution is required in preparing such an endeavor. In this region of Java, you will struggle to understand and be understood, even when it comes to the basics since English speakers are rare and far between (and French, Russian and other languages are not at all represented).

Though certain independent travelers and bloggers have managed to organize trips without encountering major problems, it must be understood that this is not a reflection of the potential risks linked to active volcano visits, which require both knowledge and experience to plan. Having been able to make the trip on one’s own without running into problems does not take anything away from the hazardousness of undertaking such an endeavor alone and/or without any experience. “Driving a motorcycle without a helmet does not systematically lead to the death of the reckless person driving, but should that person wipe out, the potential risk would be dramatic!” recounts the wise Indonesian man in charge of preparing the climbing equipment.

To minimize the risks linked to volcanic excursions and substantially save both time and money, it is essential that you be supported by a team that perfectly knows the region, its customs, and languages, as well as its norms and culture.
