Mount Batok is the inactive, dead and greener mountian full of mosses which is usually mistaken for Mount Bromo. It is a nice compliment for the active Mount Bromo for photography!

I would consider it as a part of Bromo. It looks nice and makes the Bromo scenery more charming but itself it's nothing special.

Mount Batok is right next to Bromo and often been mistaken as Bromo for most people. It is quite a bare mount and is attractive in its own right. Other than that, most people will just head to Bromo and ignore it.

Mt Batok is the perfect shape for a volcano. Sitting beside the slightly collapsed in Mt Bromo. You can't miss it as you walk or ride across the sand sea. It would be nice to spend more time here but tours often just speed you off somewhere else after hanging around for sunrise. There is a Hindu temple at its... More

Adding to the landscape view of Mount Bromo, certainly, some might thought that it was another active volcano from its shapes. Besides there is a hindu temple, you will pass through them on your way to Mount Bromo crater!
