The Ijen volcano, known to locals as Kawah Ijen; is located west of the Gunung Merapi (“Mountain of fire”) in central Java. Known for its one-kilometer-wide acidic crater lake and the sulfur mining operation around it, Ijen and its sulfur mining was featured in the 1991 film “Ring of Fire” and BBC’s documentary “Human Planet”. The lake is the largest highly acidic crater lake in the world as well as the source of the river Banyupahit, resulting in highly acidic and metal-entriched river water. The pH of the water was measured to be 0.5 due to sulfuric acid in 2008.
The Ijen’s electric-blue flame attracts visitors from all around the world for a midnight hike just to see the famous blue flame, which can only be seen in Ijen and a volcano in Iceland. It takes approximately two hours to reach the rim of the crater, and another 45 minutes downhill journey to the bank of the crater. The blue flame emerges from the cracks and can be up to 5 meters (16 feet); it is the largest blue flame in the world.
The unique experience of hiking underneath the star filled night sky and getting up close to the blue flame, followed by stunning sunrise will make this trip a unique, once in a life time experience.
