Close to the crater there is a Hindu temple. We actually noted this not until the sunset, though. Steps lead up to the crater rib. Whereas we had been practically alone during our walk other tourists showed up at the crater. Some had been brought here by car, others had chosen horses. The sunrise was grlorious, a breathtaking experience.
Most of the tourists just stayed for the sunrise. Just a handful - like us - tried the bumpy meter-wide path along the crater rim. It isn't really risky, but I was thankful that I am mostly free from giddiness.
We stayed two hours. Then walked all the way back up to the crater rim. There we walked around some more hours and enjoyed the fantastic landscape. In the afternoon we drove back to Probolinngo. We had asked our "trusty" driver to pick us up at the hotel (Like the day before, a co-driver was with him in the car.
It was even more miraculously than the day before that we reached our destination, Probolinggo Main station, without any harm. We bought a first-class ticket to Yogyakarta and got on the train.
