Kawah Ijen Blue Fire Hiking Experience From Bali

What is the blue fire?

The blue fire is a result of the combustion of sulfuric gas that seeps out of the cracks in the crater floor. When this gas comes into contact with oxygen, it ignites, creating a mesmerizing blue flame. The flames can reach up to 5 meters high, and they dance and flicker in the night sky, creating an otherworldly spectacle.

Hiking to see the blue fire

The only way to see the blue fire is to hike to the top of Mount Ijen. The hike is challenging but rewarding, and the views from the summit are simply breathtaking.
