Observe the ‘blue flames’ of Ijen Crater during a guided trek on Mt Ijen. Departing from Bali by ferry, this overnight excursion brings you to East Java late at night to start your predawn hike to the summit. Witness this extraordinary natural phenomenon in the darkness and later be treated to superb views inside Ijen Crater. Bring your camera to capture the sight and meet local sulphur miners who toil on the mountain. Numbers are limited to ensure a small-group experience. Start your overnight tour to Mt Ijen with pickup in the late afternoon at 15.00 from Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Jimbaran or Nusa Dua. Departing from your accommodation, you’re transferred to Gilimanuk Harbor in West Bali, crossing the sea by ferry and arriving in East Java around midnight.
You’re driven directly to the starting point of your guided mountain trek, where you’ll receive a safety briefing and equipment including a flashlight and gas mask. The approximate 1-mile (3-km) route to the summit takes roughly 1 to 2 hours over a combination of uphill and flat terrain. En route, interact with the sulphur miners who tirelessly carry blocks of yellow sulphur weighing 132–176 pounds (60–80 kg) via bamboo pole baskets across their shoulders. Later, witness their mining activity by traditional methods using iron rods without safety equipment. On arrival at the summit before dawn, glimpse the natural phenomenon of Mt Ijen’s blue fire (depending on weather conditions).
Stop for a light breakfast on the top of mountain before you’re guided back down for a closer look and some fantastic photo ops of Ijen Crater, Java’s largest acid lake, from the viewpoint. After the descent, you’re transferred to Banyuwangi Harbor for the late morning ferry back to Bali. Your journey ends with lunch at a local restaurant before drop-off at your hotel in the afternoon.
