Description

Ijen crater

Ijen crater, also known as “Kawah Ijen”,  is a quiet but active volcano. The magnificent turquoise sulfur lake of the Ijen crater lies at 2,148 m ASL and is surrounded by the volcano’s crater walls. Locals make the trek up to the crater and back down to the lake every day carrying no less than 75 kg of sulfur on their shoulders. The sulfur is used in the oil-refining business and in the production of fertilizers.

From the drop-off point by jeep, it is a steep 3-km climb to the summit of Ijen. It is recommended to hire a mask for the sulfur gasses coming out of the crater. To see the famous blue fire of Ijen crater you have to go down the crater.

Mount Bromo

Mount Bromo volcano, situated in the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park, is a well-known East Javan tourist attraction. Mount Bromo is attractive because it is still an active volcano. Bromo has an altitude of 2,329 m above sea level and covers four regions: Kabupaten Malang, Pasuruan, Probolinggo and Malang.

Mount Bromo has a crater with a diameter of approximately 800 metres (north-south) by 600 metres (east-west).

Eruption history

During the 20th century, Mount Bromo erupted three times, with a regular time interval of 30 years. The largest eruption occurred in 1974 and the last eruption was in 2011.

Bromo as a sacred mountain

For residents of Bromo, the volcano is a sacred mountain. Once a year, during full moon, around the 14th or 15th in the month of Kasodo (ten) according to the Javanese calendar, there is a ceremony called Kasada or Kasodo. The ceremony takes place in a temple at the foot of Mount Bromo and continues at the summit of Mount Bromo. This unique ceremony starts in the middle of the night and ends in the early morning.

Sunrise over the island of Bali

We take you in a 4WD to see the amazing Penanjakan sunrise. The extraordinary moonlike atmosphere and the opportunity to descend into the crater, are the two main reasons why you should visit Bromo. It is also a spectacular setting for observing the sunrise over the island of Bali.

Extraordinary landscapes

It's not easy to see the blue fames as it's a steep walk down towards the crater, but well worth it! I recommend using masks at the top of the mountain, due to the fumes and steam; no worries if you haven't got one, you can easily rent one from one of the local miners. Our guide was really helpfull during the whole trip. Ijen crater and Mt Bromo offer some of the most extraordinary landscapes I've ever seen. Trust me, you will not regret visiting this place!
