Trek deep down into the Ijen crater with a former miner to see the blue light of flared sulphur and witness where one of the most basic elements of the earth is found. Come back up to the top just in time to catch a beautiful sunrise over the multi-textured crater surface. Before your trek, stay in a private room at Green Ijen Homestay to get some shut-eye.

Johan picked us up at our guesthouse at 00.40 (on time!) and took us together with one other person to Ijen. He provided us with a gas mask, torch and even lend me an extra jacket (its cold up there). The guide was really nice, his english was limited but you saw that he had a lot of knowledge (20 years he was working there as a minor worker). He always waited when we needed a quick break and was always looking for us and showed us where to walk safely and so on. Hands down, a really nice experience. I can really recommend this tour. You wont regret it! Thank you Johan and Boli.
