  • 3 Days
  • Volcano
  • Easy

Located near the island of Bali, East Java has lots of beautiful places to visit. Two of them are Mt. Bromo and Mt. Ijen. People frequently having their Bromo Ijen tour from Bali. It is more convenient as you can cross by ferry from Gilimanuk Port of West Bali to Ketapang Port in East Java for an hour. Even though both volcanoes are famous in East Java, Mt. Bromo and Mt. Ijen has a different point of uniqueness.

Mount Ijen

Mount Ijen is known as its beautiful crater lake. It is about 1 km wide and 175 meters deep. In certain parts in the crater, where the sulfur miners gathered the sulfur, you will see the blue fire or blue flame. The sulfur gas adds a high pressure and temperature. When the sulfur released it will meet the oxygen that creates the blue flame. You might be able to come closer to the blue fame, with a certain condition. First, you have to use your gas mask. Next, whether or not the wind blows in your direction. If it does, the blue fame has a really strong smell so we suggest you to not go near there. After sometimes you will climb up to the rim of the crater and see the beautiful sunrise. Enjoy the fresh air with the sunlight that warms you up. On your way back you will meet many sulfur miners carrying 60-70kgs on their bare shoulders for 2 miles ascending and descending the steep Mt. Ijen slopes.

Bromo Sunrise
