Ijen crater tour from Banyuwangi airport 2 days 1 Night

Ijen crater tour | Kawah Ijen (2386 m) is an active composite volcano located within the Pleistocene Ijen Caldera (old volcanic crater), at the easternmost part of Java island.

The visible superficial manifestations of the hydrothermal system of Kawah Ijen’s activity consist of the world’s largest hyper-acidic lake on Earth, a few thermal discharges, and crater fumaroles which produce significant amounts of native sulfur.

Day 1 | Ijen crater tour

Our English-speaking driver will pick you up at Banyuwangi airport and then bring you to your hotel where you can rest before climbing the Kawah Ijen during the night.

Day 2 | Ijen crater tour

Starting from your hotel in Banyuwangi, our English-speaking driver will pick you up around 12:00 am.
From there, we will bring you to the Paltuding rest area (1-1,5 hours).

The road offers a number of magic landscapes in the middle of rice fields, small villages, and one one the last primary tropical rainforest left on Java island rounded by numerous volcanoes. You will mainly enjoy those sceneries on the way back during the daytime.

From Paltuding Area, at around 1:30 pm, you will start hiking to Ijen Crater. It takes about 1:30 -1:45 minutes for the 3km hike following a gentle slope and slightly uphill to reach the summit. The path is pretty well maintained and in good condition and other views of rounding volcanoes and luxurious vegetation will accompany your journey. From the crater rim, providing you gas mask, we will bring you down to see the blue fire right on the edge of the acidic lake (temperature of the lake: +- 40°c; Ph: 0,5; max depth:+-200m).

The laker is also the source for the river Banyupahit, resulting in highly acidic and metal-enriched river water which has a significant detrimental effect on the downstream river ecosystem.

Hike to go down (+- 45mins, rocky).

The blue fire is ignited with sulphuric gas, which emerges from cracks at temperatures up to 600 degrees Celsius (1,112 degrees Fahrenheit). Those gases are directly originated from the magmatic chamber under the volcano.

The flames can be up to 5 meters high; some of the gas condenses to liquid and is still ignited. It is the largest blue flame area in the world and one of the purest sulfur mines.

Escaping volcanic gases are channeled through a network of ceramic pipes, resulting in the condensation of molten sulfur. The sulfur, which is deep red in color when molten, pours slowly from the ends of these pipes and pools on the ground, turning bright yellow as it cools.

The miners break the cooled material into large pieces and carry it away in baskets. Miners carry loads ranging from 75 kilograms to 90 kilograms, up 300 meters to the crater rim, with a gradient of 45 to 60 degrees Most miners make this journey twice a day. (Wikipedia)

After enjoying the spectacular Blue Fire, we go back to the crater rim to enjoy the sunrise over
Bali and over the entire volcanic area.

The hike to go down takes about 45 – 1h. The driver will pick you up in Paltuding to go back to your hotel to have breakfast. After breakfast, we will drop you at Banyuwangi, ( Ketapang harbor, train station, or Banyuwangi airport. and tour program finish
