    The Journey Mount Ijen Tour Blue Flames Trekking From Bali

    Mount Ijen Tour – 4 hour drive to Gilimanuk port where our ferry departed at 10pm. No sleep later, in the dark of night, Gilimanuk almost reminded you of Calais in France and all those campervan holidays.

    Onboard, we arrived to karaoke on the ferry… you certainly don’t see that in Calais.

    Stop a while at the restaurant to get Mie Goreng it’s a shame it was 11pm and we were still stuffed from tea , Mie Goreng on Java is the tastiest we’ve ever had. From our ‘midnight’ feast you set off to Ijen, or at least you tried to.

    Mount Ijen Tour – An hour and a half later we arrived to Ijen’s car park as one of the first. With all research on Ijen I hadn’t read anything about the epic night sky until the driver  told you how incredible it was. In the end,

    2 hours, 3 km and a long break later with a guide with photographer teaching you how to capture the night sky (all of which failed… you’ll just have to go and see it for yourself!) we arrived at the top, at 2,386m.

    After seeing first miner carrying yellow sulphur in his basket we donned our gas masks (which he lacked) and headed down into the crater. One of the life-risking miners stopped to talk to you and reached out his hand with a piece of sulphur. In the pitch black, You only realise a few seconds later it was sulphur carved into a turtle.

    From the top you will see only a few head torches in the crater below and could definitely make out the small patch of blue lava. After another 40 minutes and 800m down the slippy, gravel path you will arrive to the strong smelling sulphur.
