Mount Bromo for the weekend!

I’ll be taking a break from city life to reunite with nature at Mount Bromo in East Java, Indonesia. Before trekking Mount Bromo, I’ll be stopping by in Surabaya and Malang. It’ll be my first trip to all three locations, so excited! Have you been there before? Share your tips and recommendations!

Benang Stokel means “a bundle of strings” in the local language, as the waterfall resembles a bundle of strings tied together to create one waterfall.

BREAKING NEWS: Tsunami Warning in Papua, Indonesia

A tsunami warning has been reported in Papua after the recent 8.2 magnitude earthquake in Chile. This earthquake could potentially reach Jayapura, the capital of Papua, Indonesia, 22 hours after the earthquake or around 4.46am on Thursday.

The Saka New Year, which falls on March 31 this year, is celebrated with a day of silence, fasting, and meditation, also known as Nyepi.

This Hindu holiday is observed throughout the Bali province, and is a national holiday in Indonesia. Nyepi is a day reserved for self-reflection, and anything that might interfere such as work, entertainment, and other activities are restricted. The only people to be seen outdoors are Pecalang, who are traditional security men who patrol the streets to ensure the prohibitions are followed.

Tahun Baru Saka, yang tahun ini jatuh pada tanggal 31 Maret, dirayakan dengan hari keheningan, puasa dan meditasi, juga dikenal sebagai hari Nyepi.

Hari Raya agama Hindu ini dirayakan di seluruh provinsi Bali, dan merupakan hari libur nasional di Indonesia. Hari Nyepi adalah hari untuk refleksi diri, dan apa pun yang mungkin mengganggu seperti perkerjaan, hiburan, dan kegiatan lainnya dibatasi. Satu-satunya orang yang berada di jalanan adalah Pecalang, seorang petugas keamanan tradisional yang berpatroli untuk memastikan larangan-larangan tersebut sedang diikuti.

On the eve of Nyepi Day of Silence, the ritual Mesabatan Api is held to symbolize the purification of universe and human body through fire.
