Review of Ijen Crater

Ijen Crater is a giant sulphur mine also. The lake is in a beautiful milky tosca color. You will meet so many sulphur miner there, all of them are friendly. Here i have some note when you going to visit this beautiful place

- bring masker, and soak with water (but not very wet), use it when necessary
- come early when its still dark, you could see the 'blue-fire'
- bring some nice biscuits and snack, and you may enjoy them with the miners
- trekking the first 2km from Paltuding tests your stamina
- use a better trekking shoes
- Have fun and Respect nature and people :D
