Why go visit the Kawah Ijen?

  • To discover and to approach the unique and magical "blue flames" within an active volcano.
  • To admire the sunrise over the largest acid lake in the world.
  • To share with the sulfur miners, the terrifying conditions of their labour within the volcano.

 

Part 1 – Transfer to Java

We will start our trip in the evening (5:00 p.m.) in a comfortable car or minibus from South Bali (possibility of pick up in Ubud around 6:30 p.m.)

After a few hours driving through Balinese landscapes, we will take a ferry to Java and continue on our way through traditional Javanese landscapes.

We will arrive at the Kawah Ijen base camp at an altitude of 1,900 m around midnight, where we will meet our guides, receive instructions and be provided with headlights and masks.

Part 2 – Night hike

Our ascent will start around 1 a.m. Our experienced guides will lead us along the beautiful mountain road under the starry sky.

It will take us approximately 1 and a half to 2 hours to get to the top of the volcano crater.

Part 3 – Conquering the volcano crater

Once we get to the top of the volcano (2,300 m), the most exciting part awaits us. In complete darkness and armed only with torches, we will descend into the crater of the active volcano to witness the unique phenomenon known as the “blue flames”.

Our guides, made up of former sulfur mine bearers and miners, will help everyone complete a slow descent to the entrails of the earth in a safe manner.

Take your time to relax and adjust yourself to this surreal scene: enjoy the sunrise over the world’s largest, stunning turquoise acid lake, and witness the labor of the workers carrying huge sulfur blocks on their shoulders up to the crater rim.

Part 4 – Daylight scenery on the way back

Around 6-7 a.m., we will start our descent back to the base camp. Our first challenge was making our way up to the crater rim; the second challenge is completing the descent of the stratovolcano through forest paths.

Part 5 – Breakfast and drive back to Bali

Full of energy and unforgettable memories, we will start our drive back to Bali.

On the way, we will stop to enjoy a delicious buffet-style Javanese breakfast prepared by a local family living on the flanks of the volcano. After the ferry ride from Java to Bali, we will arrive back to the starting point of our incredible journey around 5-6 p.m.

Upon returning, we can guarantee that you will feel physically tired, but this will quickly pass, leaving you to enjoy the unforgettable and lifelong memories you have made.

We come back from Kawah Ijen, what a great experience! We wanted to emphasize the quality of the guides that accompanied us in the crater; pros, friendly and helpful. Special mention for our driver Anis, who had a safe and efficient driving, and who was above all listening to his passengers to ensure a perfect trip. Thank you for conveying our warm thanks, having not had time to tell him about the drop off.

Kawah Ijen tour was by far one the highlights of my Trip in Indonesia. Having the opportunity to observe that kind of beauty makes it an unforgettable life time experience. The whole tour was exceptionally organized by the Indotravelteam with very knowledgeable tour guide sharing amazing insights throughout the hike, as well as a great, restless driver giving us the opportunity to rest throughout the long journey. Amazing experience, definitely recommended to anybody seeking for an adventurous day in the East Java.

I can only recommend Indotravel. I was in Bali during low season and turns out that I was the only person booking the tour for that date. They were amazing and didn't cancel the trip. I joined another group of 4 when I got to Ijen. They picked me up from Ubud and dropped me off in Munduk, it wasn't an issue. The guide that took us to Ijen was very professional and attentive to our needs, and an awesome photographer! As for Kawah Ijen well, it's an unbelievable landscape, seeing blue flames was a unique experience. The miners work on very difficult conditions but the still find the energy to smile to you.

It was amazing. The 24 hour trip was exhausting but a great value for my time. The drivers were great and friendly and helpful and the guides on the volcano were very knowledgeable and made sure we were safe. It was the most beautiful hike I’ve ever been on.

Ayant trouvé cette agence suite u commentaire sur un blog, je tenais à partager mon enthousiasme à mon retour. J’ai fait l’excursion 24 h sur le Kawah Inje : flammes bleues de nuit et vapeurs de soufre dns un paysage de début du monde le jour. Laissez vous porter, tout est organisé. Avant le départ, l’organisateur (francais) Vous envoie des instructions très détaillés pour que vous sachiez quoi préparer. En fait si vous êtes comme moi venu pour le boulot ou comme la plupart venus en touristes version plage, pas d’inquietude : il vous faut un pantalon et une paire de baskets. Veste gants bonnet sont fournis (en vrai pour ce qui me concerne seuls les gants ont servi et encore comme protection vis à vis du soufre, il faisait chaud même au milieu de la nuit et en haut du volcan. La montée est un peu rude mais Je pense que c’est faisable par tout le monde ( j’ai 50 ans et ne suis pas spécialement sportive) mais il ne faut pas traîner si on veut pouvoir arriver au fond du cratère de nuit pour voir les flammes bleues. Guides excellentissimes, on est en parfaite sécurité alors qu’on Termine dans les vapeurs de soufre. Masques efficaces fournis. C’est vraiment très beau, je ne vous divulgache pas le spectacle, mais il faut être là au lever du soleil . Le retour en voiture semble long (il l’est) mais on voit du paysage et on dort après une nuit de route et de randonnée. A FAIRE qui que vous soyez. C’est un tel privilège de pouvoir ainsi aller au fond d’un volcan. Rapport qualité/ prix excellent (une fois que vous montez dans la voiture, plus rien à payer, ni ferry, ni petit déjeuner)

Such a wonderful and amazing experience! We went for the bali to kawah ijen tour. No regrets because not only was the scenery and experience unforgettable, the guide and driver who took is there from Bali made it good. The guide was very informative and knowledgeable abt the terrain. He was very helpful especially when we had difficulty climbing since this was our very first hike. A great effort. The breakfast after the climb was delicious and host friendly. However because we were tired n sleepy we couldn't finish their food, our one regret

One of a kind! I did the 24hr Kawah Ijen and it was such an amazing experience that I'll remember forever. Pierrick was such a delight to meet. He's hands-on and assured my safety. Our guide Harry was very knowledgeable and he made sure that everyone was comfortable during ascend and descend. He even carried my bag when my legs were about to give up. He's a good photographer too! Our driver, Anees, even with his limited english has been very kind and helpful throughout the travel. I can also say he's a vigilant driver. Pierrick has a very good team. We encountered zero problems. Safety was my number one concern and I am very glad that I did the tour with this team. I will definitely recommend this to others especially to solo travellers like me. P.S. For those who are beginners and are not used to exercising, this will be quite a challenge. You might think of giving up, (which I almost did) but don't! Just walk at your pace. Don't hurry, rest if you need it. Your guide will be there in every step of the way. Bring tissues/scarf/face mask for the cold cause you'll need it to cover your nose and mouth when ascending. Most of all enjoy and savor the experience.

Nous sommes allés au Kawah Ijen et ça a été fabuleux ! Une expérience à vivre !! Un énorme merci à notre guide Ari qui a été fantastique tout au long de cette découverte, il est très rassurant, calme, nous a pris plein de superbes photos et nous a laissé le temps d'admirer le paysage. Nous sommes très contents d'avoir fait confiance à Indotravelteam et les masques prêtés nous permettaient de respirer sans difficulté alors que beaucoup d'autres personnes autour de nous toussaient :s, merci à Indotravelteam d'assurer notre santé. Je pense que cette excursion sera un de nos meilleurs souvenirs de notre voyage de noces :). Fabuleux.

We had a really great Trip to Ijen Krater with Pierrick. The Organisation was perfect, we did not do anything out of the ordinary. Thank you for that! The climb was incredible, the view amazing, we had really fun. In my opinion the style of driving of Pierrick was a little bit to wild but we came really fast to our destination. We recommend the Trip with Indotravelteam.

Скористались послугами команди Індотревел в екскурсіі на вулкан Іджен. Сподобалась організація екскурсіі, професійні гіди, завжди готові допомогти, з хорошим знанням англійськоі, гіди робили все, щоб екскурсія пройшла вдало - контролювали, допомагали, фотографували і розказували про місцевість. Сніданок в яванській сім‘і також був дуже гарним. Рекомендую усім Індотревел!

Хотел бы поделиться своим впечатлением о поездке с друзьями на вулкан Иджен, которое огранизовали Indotraveltem. Выбрали мы именно этих ребят по совету наших друзей и явно не промахнулись! С самого начала и до самого окончания нашего путешествия все было очень комфортно, крутой водитель, который останавливался и вежливо прислушивался ко всем нашим просьбам, угостил всех нас вкусными пончиками)) Теплую одежду нам также предоставили, маски, перчатки, все что нужно для подьема. Англоговорящий гид, со своей аптечкой и даже кислородом. Это путешествие я точно запомню надолго, те эмоции и впечатления, которые я получил, это незабываемо точно!! Во вторую поездку в Индонезию мы точно обратимся к этим ребятам, тк они знают свое дело! Всем советую!

Trip para Ijen crater foi uma das melhores experiências! Tudo aconteceu como planejado. Os guias são profissionais, gente boa, e super atenciosos com todos no grupo! O café da manhã foi também uma ótima experiência cultural. Café tradicional e completamente diferente do que estamos acostumados no Brasil. Recomendo!

Seriously amazing. This trip was wonderful from the very first second. First of all, organisation and communication prior to the trip was excellent - we were perfectly prepared for the trip, and got some super helpful tips & tricks on what to do and where to shoot that perfect instagram photo ;) After a fairly comfortable ride on a mini bus all the way over to Java, we arrived at the basecamp late at night to get all the gear (masks, coats, hats, and flashlights - so happy we got all of this provided!) and started the hike up the volcano. It's quite a challenging hike, but our tour guides Hary and Pur were amazing and entertaining so that even the quite steep part in the middle was actually fun. Once up on the volcano, you put your face mask on and start climbing down. It looked absolute surreal and beautiful, and once we were down we could see the coolest thing ever - BLUE FIRE inside the volcano! It was absolutely breath taking (no pun intended!) and will probably one of the most surreal and wonderful experiences of my life. Just as I thought it can't get any better, we experienced sun rise in the volcano and saw the beautiful acid lake in the middle, could see the sulfur mining in action, and take about a million selfies for instragram (no filter needed!). The hike back up/ down is also fantastically beautiful; you can see some other volcanos and a beautiful scenic landscape, and we even got to see some wild monkeys! On the journey back you stop at a beautiful little house to get traditional Balinesian (or Javanesian?) breakfast - super tasty and probably the most rewarding breakfast I ever had after hours of hiking ;) 10/10 would recommend.
