Day 2: Ijen crater – Bali

An early morning start for today’s tour. After breakfast at the hotel, drive to the slope of Mount Ijen, passing through plantations and rainforest.

Upon arrival at the Park Ranger’s post you will exit your vehicle and start hiking up to the slope of the crater. About 1,5 - 2 hours is needed to reach the rim of the crater along a shady track with amazing views.

Take a rest on the edge of the crater at 2380-meter altitude. The sulfuric lake reflects eerie color over the surrounding walls to give an apocalypse like impression. Men seeking the sulfur descend into the crater and climb back up along the dangerous rim with loads of up to 80 kilos on their shoulders.

Afterwards making your descent, your vehicle will be waiting to transfer you to the port and then cross the strait and back to Denpasar.
