Quiet and freezing, this would be the best definition to describe the night on Paltuding. But there are few people start working on the quietness. Yes, those are working for collectig sulfur. They start to go after dusk and even in the middle of night. Bring only a lantern to light the only worn path they follow to the rim of the crater.

In Ijen it's been more less 5 sulphur miner died because they slipped when they walk up from the crater.
Not to point one group of tourists, but since most tourists who go there are French, the worse tourists is French. Some French don't wanna listen to explanation that standing or taking photos too close with the ed of crater rim is so dangerous.
There are lots of small rocks that are really slippery when your shoes aren't so good (with pull like in football shoes).
Once, there was a French fell in to the crater and hit the rocks, he died.
Last time I was there with a friend from France. She warned three old French not to stand too close to the crater. They were NOT LISTENING!!! Even she said it in French!!
I think French should learn from what already happened to their partner.

Once one leaves Blawan village one enters the nature reservation of which Ijen volcano is a part. No more plantations or habitations here.
Halfway to Paltuding we encountered a picnic spot, a gazebo near a stream. The water flowing over the rocks looked clear enough, but tasted terribly acrid. We think it must be an outflow of the sulfurous crater lake.
