Departure Time

5:00 PM
Start your overnight tour to Mt Ijen with pickup in the late afternoon from Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Jimbaran or Nusa Dua. Departing from your accommodation, you’re transferred to Gilimanuk Harbor in West Bali, crossing the sea by ferry and arriving in East Java around midnight.

You’re driven directly to the starting point of your guided mountain trek, where you’ll receive a safety briefing and equipment including a flashlight and gas mask. The approximate 1-mile (3-km) route to the summit takes roughly 1 to 2 hours over a combination of uphill and flat terrain.

En route, interact with the sulphur miners who tirelessly carry blocks of yellow sulphur weighing 132–176 pounds (60–80 kg) via bamboo pole baskets across their shoulders. Later, witness their mining activity by traditional methods using iron rods without safety equipment. 

On arrival at the summit before dawn, glimpse the natural phenomenon of Mt Ijen's blue fire (depending on weather conditions). Stop for a light breakfast on the mountaintop before you’re guided back down for a closer look and some fantastic photo ops of Ijen Crater, Java’s largest acid lake, from the viewpoint.

After the descent, you’re transferred to Banyuwangi Harbor for the late morning ferry back to Bali. Your journey ends with lunch at a local restaurant before drop-off at your hotel in the afternoon.

I would recommend this tour. The volcano is incredible but it isn't for everyone. Its a tough climb overnight and journey from Bali is pretty long. The driver were very courteous and the tour guide was pretty average. There was a wait in a building/house that was unexpected, we had to wait until fellow travelers arrived so we'd leave as a group.

The Volcano itself was fantastic, challenging ascent, challenging descent into the crater with difficult conditions and amazing and spectacular scenery. It is tough, and you do need a decent level of fitness to manage it. The conditions are also incredibly unpleasant at the bottom of the crater, so be prepared for clouds of sulphur gas. IT IS WORTH IT THOUGH! The organisation of the tour that we were on left a lot to be desired. Our pickup time was changed twice, there was very little information on what the itinerary was, and there was a number of surprise stops on the journey to the volcano itself, the strangest of which was arriving in a semi-completed residential complex to wait for a while before travelling to the park. No prior warning that this was going to be the case and certainly an uneasy feeling associated with it. As with most Bali tours, the guides were more glorified drivers, with very little offered by way of guiding, more drive to a location and drop you off come find us when you're done So, in conclusion - go to the volcano, it's freaking awesome. Choose a different company to take you.
