Your Indispensable Guide To Exploring The Indonesian Ijen

6 Types of Female Friends You May Travel With

By Kim   March 02, 2018

The Indonesian Ijen is an ideal destination for you if you have an immense passion for climbing down a mountain filled with a highly toxic lake of lava and a steaming cloud of Sulphur – making you cover your mouth with a mask-like a military man. The last thing to expect would be having the idea of leaving Indonesia without having experienced the landmark of the Indonesian people. If you love unpredictable outcomes and have a passion for exploring new dangerous features, then the Indonesian Ijen is the perfect destination for you.

Preparation

A pre-trip would be an excellent idea for you to familiarise yourself with the trip and get to know your tour guide. Remember to have at least some equipment of the Indonesian Ijen tour package with you: a pair of gloves, some masks, torches, and warm clothes. Your tour agency should have them prepared beforehand.

Before choosing your guide, make sure you evaluate their skills first by checking their testimonials from other clients or checking their social media pages.

Hiking the Ijen Crater

The trek begins with a rather smooth and full route without outcrops, and you can walk for an hour without worrying. The last 30 minutes of your walk will be tougher, where you must carry a bamboo stick to aid your ascent. Getting into the caldera can be a daunting task, being a tough scramble and if you’re unsure of your steps. However, remember to stay calm during all of this.

The environment has huge clouds of Sulphur, so you need to take reasonable precautions, especially if you have an asthmatic condition. There is a large platform at the bottom of the crater where you can watch the magical blue fire at midnight, and beautiful flames that disappear at 5 am. While there are lots you could enjoy watching, you should be careful not to touch your eyes as your hands could have toxic gases or acidic water.

Climbing the Crater

If you love hiking with lots of people, you should climb the crater during holidays or long weekends. If you like solitude with just a couple of friends, lots of people will be along this long trail, so it is wise to avoid this period. The blue fire appears at around midnight and disappears by 5 am, so make sure you’re awake through this time to enjoy the views.

How to Reach the Ijen Crater

There are two main routes to lead you to the base camp when you begin the hike. If you’re in Bali, use the “Bali route,” and if you’re in Java, take the “Java route.”

If you're travelling from Bali, you can reach the crater via Banyuwangi as it’s only 45km from Ijen. In the case that you’re in Java, the suggested route to reach the Ijen crater is through the 64 Km Bondowoso stretch.

Travel Time

The excitement to reach the top of the crater could make you lack in sleep. It takes almost 24 solid hours to travel to and from Ijen, but you can be sure to be exhausted on your way back. It’s not a short trip, so you should be prepared.

Conclusion

The Indonesian Ijen is an incredible place to visit, but you need to take lots of precautions as the area has clouds of dangerous gases and acidic waters. Another thing to remember is visiting the restroom prior, as the place is not equipped with any!

  • Hey there, I just found your site, quick question…

    My name’s Eric, I found bjingshiyiwu.com after doing a quick search – you showed up near the top of the rankings, so whatever you’re doing for SEO, looks like it’s working well.

    So here’s my question – what happens AFTER someone lands on your site? Anything?

    Research tells us at least 70% of the people who find your site, after a quick once-over, they disappear… forever.

    That means that all the work and effort you put into getting them to show up, goes down the tubes.

    Why would you want all that good work – and the great site you’ve built – go to waste?

    Because the odds are they’ll just skip over calling or even grabbing their phone, leaving you high and dry.

    But here’s a thought… what if you could make it super-simple for someone to raise their hand, say, “okay, let’s talk” without requiring them to even pull their cell phone from their pocket?

    You can – thanks to revolutionary new software that can literally make that first call happen NOW.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that sits on your site, ready and waiting to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re still there at your site.

    You know, strike when the iron’s hot!

    CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithcustomer.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    When targeting leads, you HAVE to act fast – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later is huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s why you should check out our new SMS Text With Lead feature as well… once you’ve captured the phone number of the website visitor, you can automatically kick off a text message (SMS) conversation with them.

    Imagine how powerful this could be – even if they don’t take you up on your offer immediately, you can stay in touch with them using text messages to make new offers, provide links to great content, and build your credibility.

    Just this alone could be a game changer to make your website even more effective.

    Strike when the iron’s hot!

  • Hi, Eric here with a quick thought about your website bjingshiyiwu.com…

    I’m on the internet a lot and I look at a lot of business websites.

    Like yours, many of them have great content.

    But all too often, they come up short when it comes to engaging and connecting with anyone who visits.

    I get it – it’s hard. Studies show 7 out of 10 people who land on a site, abandon it in moments without leaving even a trace. You got the eyeball, but nothing else.

    Here’s a solution for you…

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. You’ll know immediately they’re interested and you can call them directly to talk with them literally while they’re still on the web looking at your site.

    CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithcustomer.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    It could be huge for your business – and because you’ve got that phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately… and contacting someone in that 5 minute window is 100 times more powerful than reaching out 30 minutes or more later.

    Plus, with text messaging you can follow up later with new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to keep the conversation going.

    Everything I’ve just described is extremely simple to implement, cost-effective, and profitable.

    CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithcustomer.com to discover what Talk With Web Visitor can do for your business.

    You could be converting up to 100X more eyeballs into leads today!

  • Hey, my name’s Eric and for just a second, imagine this…

    - Someone does a search and winds up at bjingshiyiwu.com.

    - They hang out for a minute to check it out. “I’m interested… but… maybe…”

    - And then they hit the back button and check out the other search results instead.

    - Bottom line – you got an eyeball, but nothing else to show for it.

    - There they go.

    This isn’t really your fault – it happens a LOT – studies show 7 out of 10 visitors to any site disappear without leaving a trace.

    But you CAN fix that.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know right then and there – enabling you to call that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

    Plus, now that you have their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation… so even if you don’t close a deal then, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Strong stuff.
