Morning departure for Banyuwangi Ijen Tours

One (1) day trip from Banyuwangi in the morning time (dawn time) to Ijen Crater or Kawah Ijen for Ijen Crater Tours with green lake of sulfur & other interesting places which are located in Ijen Crater area

Ijen crater shows a special type of volcanic feature common to Indonesia, about 1 kilometer in diameter and 175 meters deep. The floor is covered completely by a warm lake, milky blue green in colours held back by a dam built many years ago by the Dutch, in order to keep the hot, mineral laden water from raining the crop lands below.

The crater can be reached from either the east or the west by any kinds of vehicles or transports, but the second part of the trip covers distance 3 km on foot (jungle track). However, the latter is more popular approach, since the climb from the road's end to the edge of the lake is only one and a half hours. And a walk around the lake takes a full day
