Heading across the island of Java, the participants of the Ijen Blue Fire Tour from Canggu Bali will experience the joyful ferry boat trip. Crossing to Java Island on the boat takes about an hour.

Starting the trip to Blue Fire Volcano from Ketapang Port Banyuwangi, the journey takes an hour-long until it drives you to Paltuding, the Ijen parking area, and the admission.

Ijen Crater Paltuding is 1814 masl. The last preparations before starting to hike are all done on Paltuding. From Paltuding, hiking to Mount Ijen, which is 2386 masl, is 2 hours long.

Ijen Crater Lake is an acid 200 meters in depth and around 5466 hectares in width lake. Its volume reaches 36 million meters cubic, with around 500 meters height of the caldera wall. Ijen Mountain Indonesia does not only give you the beauty of a caldera and a fascinating lake. Ijen crater also has a unique natural phenomenon, the rare blue fire flaming out from the crater.

Blue fire phenomenon occurs when volcanic gas containing high-temperature sulfur collides with air or oxygen. The collision between the sulfur gas and oxygen then creates the blue spark. Blue fire volcano is an exceptional phenomenon that can hardly be found on Earth. As history recorded, there are only two blue fire natural phenomena that have ever been found. They are the Ijen Crater of Banyuwangi and the other one is in Iceland.

Ijen crater sulfur is also mined as it is the raw material of cosmetics, soap, and also sugar production. Ijen sulfur mining is done by distributing the volcanic gas through metal pipes to keep its temperature low so that it can change into liquid sulfur. Ijen sulfur mining is started only when the liquid sulfur turns solid. The ready-to-mine solid sulfur is then smashed with crowbars.

Ijen Tour from Bali invites you to take a closer look at the sulfur mining process of Mount Ijen. The mining is still traditional for the miners to use traditional tools like the crowbar, hose as a fire extinguisher, and bamboo basket to carry the sulfur. The Ijen sulfur miners commonly wear simple equipment like head torchlight, gloves, thin jackets, and boots. Most of them even wear no masks to beat off the thick sulfur smoke. There are at least 200 miners in Ijen every day. They usually start to mine by climbing up the hill from dawn in the morning and then down to the crater.

The process of sulfur mining usually takes one or two hours. Having finished the mining process, the miners will collect the mined sulfurs and put them into the baskets. Then they will climb up the hill, carrying the full baskets of sulfur. Each miner will repeat it twice or three times a day.

In each of the climbing up-and-down trips, each of the Ijen sulfur miners can carry 80-100 kg of load. Each kilogram of the sulfur they carry is commonly worth for about Rp 925, or 0,065 USD. But, to boost their motivation to load the sulfur twice a day, at the second or the third loading, the sulfur is worth Rp 1025, or around 0,073 USD for each kilogram. If in a day a sulfur miner can load twice from the crater, he will get around Rp 194.500 or about 13,76 USD. The sulfur mining activity is just another interesting social phenomenon to notice. It can be about how they break the sulfur stones by using crowbars. Or how they strive to carry the sulfur on baskets on their shoulders, move them into trolleys, and then push them until they reach the weighing area down around Paltuding.

Ijen plateau Java is one of the most favorite in Indonesia. Ijen Plateau presents you with a beautiful view. Aside from the view of the caldera with its turquoise crater, the tourists can also spot other mountain peaks. Like the peaks of Mount Suket, Mount Ranti, mount Merapi Ungup-Ungup, Wurung Crater, and Mount Raung.

On the peak of Ijen, visitors will witness the beauty of the fascinating sunrise. In a fair climate, the sunrise will even be more fascinated with the clouds besieging the mountains.
