This is one of the few remaining areas on Java with giant ferns and plants, ; big trees. From the entrance to Ijen it is about 1.5 hours to ascend slope of Mount Ijen to reach the rim of Ijen Crater. Along the path you will enjoy the stunning natural scenery with fresh air & shady. Depending on smoke thickness we can continue going down into the crater, to get closer from the blue flames. The path going down into the crater takes about 20 minutes. Down inside the crater you will be able see the amazing the blue flames and also you will see the sulfur miners at work. They climb back up the scrabble path out of Ijen Crater with as much as 80 kilograms on their shoulders. Don’t forget to take picture with the blue flames as your background as a proof that you have seen the blue flames in Ijen crater. Time in the crater is around 30 minutes. Back at the rim, we can rest at an altitude of 2386 meters above sea level and enjoy the amazing panorama of the lake & surrounding peaks. It truly is a vision to behold. You will also enjoy the beautiful scenery around the rim of Ijen as one of God’s amazing creation, as we walk around the rim a bit. Don’t forget to take pictures in this area also as a proof that you have visited one of the most amazing places on earth. Also remember this – there are no handrails around the rim, so be very careful. The descent is actually refreshing with Merapi & Raung in view on the way down.
