If your hotel around Pemuteran or Lovina, you can start the tour at 9.00 PM, because it’s only 2-3 hours’ drive. Your driver will take you to the western part of Bali, Gilimanuk Ferry Port is one of the busiest port that help the people want to travel to Java Island by land. The ferry will take about an hour. Upon your arrival in Ketapang Ferry Port (Java Island), you will be escorted to Paltuding, Paltuding is the parking place and also start point for all the visitors who want to do trekking in Ijen Crater. Paltuding stands around 1850m and Ijen Crater is around 2386m.

We will walk in 3 km and we need ± 1, 5 hours to the top of Ijen Crater and some people called Ijen Crater also Kawah Ijen or Ijen Plateau. When you have reached the top of Ijen Crater, you will see the blue fire in small size from the top of the Crater, if you are still fit enough, you will be guided to go down for 30 minutes to see the blue fire closer, make sure you have put the gas mask on your neck. The path to go down into the blue fire point is so dangerous, it’s rocky and slippery, and you must walk slowly and listen to your guide.
Upon your arrival in blue fire point, you will be amazed to it, because it’s only two in the world, in Ijen Crater, Indonesia and Dallol Volcano in Ethiopia. The blue fire is actually from the hydrogen sulfate gas that meets oxygen on the air, and it only appears in the night. At 5.00 AM, you have to go back to the top of the Ijen Crater to see the sunrise and the view of Ijen Crater from above.
The scenery will be wonderful when the sun shines perfectly to the crater because Ijen Crater has a beautiful big sulfur lake with turquoise color. Ijen Crater is one of the most active volcanoes with the most acid lake in the world, the acidity reaches 0,8 ph – 0,5 ph.
