IJEN CRATER, Do you have a mesmerizing electric blue fire, streaming down the mountain during the night, a turquoise, tranquil, but highly toxic lake with a sunrise that leaves you in awe with various shades of pink and purple as a backdrop, yourself being enrobed in sulfur clouds, breathing into a gas mask, making you look like a soldier on a mission and passing men carrying for hours up to 90 kilos of sulfur in baskets on their shoulders in mind when planning a hike in Indonesia?
East-Java is world-famous for its hikes at Bromo and Ijen. it’s common to go to both volcanos in an exceedingly 2-day Bromo and Ijen tour.
The hike to the highest of Ijen is unquestionably challenging. It takes about 1.5-hours to succeed in the crater lake with some very steep steps. the great thing is, there’s a well-marked path. You mustn’t worry to induce loss while walking in the dark.
Blue fire Ijen tour
The blue fire is a natural wonder that can only be seen at Ijen and in Iceland. It is only visible in the extreme darkness. If you are planning to witness the blue fire, you have to start walking at 1 AM. Once at the top you have to descend again into the crater, wearing a mask to find the blue fire.
Sunrise Ijen Crater
Sunrise is beautiful up here, the colours of the lake are highlighted, but the blue flames disappear at 5 am, so you have to come during the night if you want to see them.
The turquoise lake in the crater of the Kawah Ijen volcano looks serene and inviting. It also happens to be the world’s largest acidic lake.
The water in the crater lake has a pH of less than 0.3 on a scale of 0 to 14 (7 is neutral). For comparison, lemon juice has a pH of 2; battery acid has a pH of 1. That acidity affects the chemistry of nearby river ecosystems, including the river Banyupahit.
