The best choice if you decide to start this Trip from Bali (or Ketapang). Located only one hour away from the ferry harbor connecting Bali, Kawah Ijen is a composite volcano offering one of the best and breathe taking scenery in Indonesia. Famous for the acidic turquoise lake and the blue fire, the volcano is also well known for its miners carrying almost pure sulfur from inside the crater.
An amazing experience that will bring you to another planet and will give you a human insight into the life around this atypical mountain. Ijen expedition will ensure you live this experience in total security, with nothing to worry about except taking the best pictures ever!
The blue fire is ignited with sulphuric gas, which emerges from cracks at temperatures up to 600 degrees Celsius (1,112 degrees Fahrenheit). Those gases are directly originated from the magmatic chamber under the volcano. The flames can be up to 5 meters high; some of the gas condenses to liquid and is still ignited. It is the largest blue flame area in the world and one of the purest sulfur mines.
Escaping volcanic gases are channeled through a network of ceramic pipes, resulting in the condensation of molten sulfur. The sulfur, which is deep red in color when molten, pours slowly from the ends of these pipes and pools on the ground, turning bright yellow as it cools. The miners break the cooled material into large pieces and carry it away in baskets. Miners carry loads ranging from 75 kilograms to 90 kilograms, up 300 meters to the crater rim, with a gradient of 45 to 60 degrees and Most miners make this journey twice a day.
