    IJEN CRATER

    by meiyergani Written Jan 18, 2015

    Banyuwangi is very popular between mountain hiker who visited IJEN mountain and its beautiful Crater Lake which located at the western part of Banyuwangi, the traditional sulfur miners who amazingly climb up and down the slope of Mount Merapi is also amazing. A man puts about 70 kg of yellowish stone in to his basket, before he descends the mountain slope to sell his load, carrying the same basket, going in the same direction, digging the same mineral. It is the natural picture that can be seen everyday.
    All IJEN hikers would start from PALTUDING Base Camp... hiking up 3 KM to reach the crater lake and explore this experience by trekking up and get a close encounter on the sulfur lake for the "BLUE FIRE" scene, those are the blurry sulfur liquid flows on the dark night and it turns to be a blurry and glowing blue phosphor liquid if reach this peak a few hours before the sunrise

  • Surabaya

    by euskaldun Written Sep 30, 2010

    I personally did not find Surabaya a very attractive city. One or two days in the city would be enough in my opinion, unless you have any particular interest in visiting that city. On the other hand, I thought Mt. Bromo was stunning. You need to stay overnight, but it is well worth it. I also found the Ijen Crater near Banyugwangi fascinating, but it is even further than Mt. Bromo.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ... 3 hours trek start early from 3am, see people working with fire take sulphur crystal from the crater. It's amazing to see the fire from volcano in the dark, it's look like the fantacy land, many smoke of sulphur but the worker working without any protection. I follow one of worker down to the place where they work in the middle of the hold. Many workers took a large kilos of sulphur, very heavy around 15-20 kgs.
