VOLCANO IJEN 1. TRIP ⛰It was a long, tiring trip, total of 21 hours with 3 hours sleep, but totally WORTH IT!! Once you reach the hill and enjoy the view, the sunrise, it's totally worth it!!
⛰Kawah Ijen volcano in East Java contains the world's largest acidic volcanic crater lake, famous for its turquoise color.
⛰The active crater measuring 950x600 m is known for its rich sulphur deposits which are being quarried.
⛰The highest point is 'Gunung Merapi', which means 'mountain of fire' in the Indonesian language (why 'fire', see the 3d post in this series)
🚌Our trip started late, I was picked up at 21:00 from my hotel. 3, 5 hrs or took us to get to the port #Gilimanuk
⛴ Ferry to East Java, 40 minutes 🚗 Another jeep, another 1 hour
⛰We started our ascend at 3am and came back at 8am. Total 15,5 km on foot. - 1 month ago
