Paltuding - Blue Fire - Sunrise -  Sulfur Mining

After taking care of the registration, along with your tour guide, we hike to the top of the volcano. Walk to the steep path for 1 hour, and stop over halfway to take a short break at Pos Bunder. To get to the blue fire spot we need to descend to the bottom of the crater and walk down to the narrow path for about 30 minutes. Good shoes are a must due to the slippery path and narrow, we have to share the same path with the sulfur miner. 

When the sun rises, you will be invited to climb the crater to enjoy the stunning natural scenery with fresh air & shade. Rest on the edge of the crater at an altitude of 2385 meters and enjoy the best panorama of the lake of acid water which reflects the spectacular view in the surrounding walls that gives the impression of doom. The sulfur miners go down into the crater and climb back up by passing a dangerous path on the edge of the Ijen crater with a load of as much as 80 kilograms on their shoulders, this is a dangerous and hard job. Do not forget to take pictures in this area as proof that you have visited one of the most amazing and dangerous places on earth. After enjoying the natural scenery at Crater of Ijen and then descend the slope of Mount Ijen until the vehicle’s parking area where your driver is waiting to drive you back to your hotel.

Drive back to Banyuwangi - Coffee & Rubber Plantation Stop Over (optional)

On the way back to your hotel we will stop over at a local coffee plantation, aside from the coffee plantation we also can see the rubber latex trees. Your tour guide will explain to you how the rubber latex is naturally harvested and proceed to be able to make end products such as rubber bands and tires.

Note that this visit is optional, you can skip this if you want to directly drive back to the hotel or need to rush to catch the train to probolinggo to get to Mount Bromo. But if you have more time we advise to stop over at this attraction Kalibendo Cofee and Rubber Plantation it will only take 20 minutes to visit.
