When you walk into the crater of Gunung Ijen, you will pass many miners going in and out the crater with 80 kilo in their basket. The climb out the crater is pretty tough and we were amazed by these people and the hard work they did. We walked into this crater for three times that day. First time in the morning, when most miners were there, second time in the afternoon when it was more quiet and during the evening we visited the crater for the third time to see the blue fire. In the evening we were accompanied by two miners who light the way, who were on their way to their tent in the crater. The volcano Ijen is one of the spots you have to visit when you’re at Java. To give you an idea where we are talking about, we made an travel movie about our visit to Gunung Ijen.
