The day has finally come to visit one of the most attractive volcanoes in Indonesia! One of the last open pit sulfur mines that survive on the planet. For this climb you can choose between two schedules. Either leave very early to see the blue lava (leaving the hotel about 1.30am) or leave more quietly only for sunrise (about 4am). You can decide once you meet the guide. Once we pick you up at your hotel, you will head towards the village of Licin to reach the slope of the volcano to begin the climb to the crater of the volcano. During this trek, your guide will give you double filter masks to protect you from the natural chemicals of sulfur.

At an altitude of 2883 meters and when dawn begins, an incredible contrast of colors will open before your eyes. A yellow earth scene and a large turquoise blue lake inside the crater that contrast with a suspended white cloud that is continuously expelling the volcano. In turn, among so much beauty you will see the local miners do what is said to be one of the toughest jobs in the world. These miners go down to the crater of the volcano to load 80 to 100 kilos of sulfur on their shoulders and then sell it. After this amazing experience on the edge of Ijen volcano crater, we begin the descent with an incredible panoramic view of the mountains that make up the national park.

We will take you to your hotel to cool off and have breakfast and then we start the way back to Bali. Thank you very much for doing this unforgettable trekking with Come2indonesia.

When is the best time of the year to do this tour?

Our favourite time for travel in Indonesia is between April to October, although Indonesia is a great year-round destination, offering memorable experiences for all kinds of adventures. July to August are the peak summer months. In West to Central part of the weather is delightfully warm and it’s a popular time for travellers to visit for holidays, whilst if you wish to travel from October to April, the Eastern part Indonesia, like Banda and Raja Ampat, would be the best option.

If you wish to have a relaxing journey in Indonesia with less crowds, the shoulder months of April to June and September to October are ideal and slightly more economic. If you must travel in ‘high season’ but want to avoid the crowd, worry not, there are numbered of unbeaten track in Indonesia ready to be explored.
