2h bus from Surabaya to Probolinggo, then another 1h bus up to Ngadisiri, a few km from Cemoro Lawang, the usual starting point at the lip of Mt Bromo.

Beautiful place...

Hey Andrie I believe if you arrive at the Probolinggo bus terminal early enough there will be local buses that will take you up to Cemoro Lawang. I think these buses stop at about 5 p.m. Matthias and I arrived a little after that\'s why we had to charter a private jeep instead (more expensive). My impression is its quite common for people to arrive late, so yes there\'s a chance you can find someone to share a jeep with if necessary. Another alternative is to take an ojek (motorcycle taxi) all the way up, though someone I met who did that said it was a somewhat harrowing experience! Hope that helps, happy and safe travels!
