Full description
Be collected at your accommodation in Banyuwangi at midnight. The journey to the Ijen Crater will take about 2 hours. The hike to the Ijen Crater viewpoint takes 90-120 minutes from the foot of the path, which leads you to the top. On a clear day, you can see the magical blue fire, which is a truly unique experience. After witnessing the stunning blue flames from the viewpoint, continue to catch the beautiful sunrise over the largest acid lake on Java Island, called Ijen's Crater. On the way back to the parking lot, appreciate the local miners carrying sulfur rock as part of their daily tough life to continue fulfilling their family bread and butter.  After 1-hour trek down, you will reach the parking lot around 7:00 AM. Do not miss the experience to stop at the coffee and cloves plantation on the way back to your accommodation, which you will reach around 9:00 AM.
