After enjoying the blue fire, you should go back to the top of Ijen Crater, from the top you will see the view of the turquoise lake. It will be nice when the sun shines on the lake.

Besides the picturesque landscape, you will be amazed at the sulfur miners or workers here; they can carry the block of sulfur up to 90kg from the sulfur mining point to the top of Ijen Crater. They only get paid IDR 80,000, it depends on how many kgs of sulfur they can carry because per kg is only IDR 1,000.
