Ijen Crater One Of 2 Places With Blue Fire Phenomenon

Ijen Crater Tourism in East Java is still widely discussed on social media and is still a favorite of travelers. At the eastern end of Java Island, precisely on the border between Banyuwangi and Bondowoso, you can start a journey that your life will never forget.

Tourist attractions that offer craters may already be found in many countries, including Indonesia. However, the only crater that can emit blue light at dawn is in Ijen, Banyuwangi, Indonesia. In Ijen crater, you can do two interesting activities. The first is seeing the blue fire in the early hours of the morning and the second is trekking while seeing the miners passing tirelessly with the huge sulfur stones.

Mount Ijen is a volcano located on the border between Banyuwangi Regency and Bondowoso Regency, East Java, Indonesia. This mountain has an altitude of 2,386 meters above sea level and is located side by side with Mount Merapi. Mount Ijen last erupted in 1999. One of the most famous natural phenomena of Mount Ijen is the blue fire (blue fire) in the crater which is located at its peak. This mountain climbing can be started from two places. Hikers can depart from Banyuwangi or from Bondowoso.

The phenomenon of eternal blue fire or eternal blue fire is in the Ijen crater, and this natural sight only occurs in two places in the world, namely Ethiopia (Mount Dallol) and Ijen. Blue fire can only be seen by the human eye when there is no light, therefore the ideal time to see it is 2 to 4 in the morning, because the climbing of Mount Ijen only starts to open at 2 in the morning. From Ijen Crater, we can see views of other mountains in the Ijen Mountains complex, including the summit of Mount Marapi which is east of Ijen Crater, Mount Raung, Mount Suket, and Mount Rante.

What you need to know is that Ijen is still an active volcano. Administratively, this area is located in two regencies, namely Banyuwangi and Bondowoso. This crater is above an altitude of 2,368 meters above sea level and is part of Mount Ijen, one of the active volcanoes on the island of Java.

In the past, miners had to use baskets to transport the sulfur they got. But now, they use trolleys. In addition to transporting sulfur, they can also bring guests with these trolleys. To go up, 1 visitor must pay 500 to 700 thousand. And if you just go down, around 150 to 300 thousand. For climbers, they are expected to be careful not to interfere with the course of the sulfur miners.

The road to Ijen Crater via Banyuwangi is quite uphill. Therefore, prepare your vehicle and physique before taking the trip. Especially if you drive at night. Because the road climbs closer to 45 degrees. the Ijen Crater area also has quite an extreme temperature. From May to September the temperature in the Ijen crater area can approach 5 degrees Celsius. So, prepare warm clothes so you don't experience hypothermia on the mountain.

Keep in mind, during a pandemic like this time, make sure when you visit the Covid-19 prevention health protocol, namely by wearing a mask. Then wash your hands with soap, keep your distance, and do not travel if you have a fever or body temperature above 37.3 degrees Celsius.
