Highlights: the little wonder Ijen sulfur crater (Discovery Channel, National Geographic)
Day 1: Bali – Ijen
Pick up at your hotel and drive west through Bali Barat National Park. Arrive at Gilimanuk harbor at approximately 11.20. Wait for the ferry to Ketapang. It should take 30 – 70 minutes to get to Ketapang harbor. Set your watch 1 hour back and ….. bienvenue â Java! Heading north-west, we will have lunch at local restaurant in banyuwangi. Your English speaking guide knows some restaurants on the way that won’t give you the Bali.. oups-Java belly! Continue to Ijen. Check in at Arabica house, have some real Java coffee, see coffee plantation, coffee making and une petite promenade through the village of Sempol. (Lunch, Dinner)
Day 2: A Climb to Ijen – Bali
Breakfast at 05.00, drive to the starting point Paltuding and climb to the top of Ijen and see the spectacular scenery of the crater. The climb to the top is easy as the sulfur collectors normally carry some sulfur weighing 50 up to 105 kgs! And most of them do that twice a day. When you are on top, you will be very much tempted to go down to the crater itself. Your guide will decide whether it is safe to go down and will give you a short brief how to breath with the mask in case the wind blows this very toxic gas to your face! Go back to the starting point, and drive back to Bali. (Breakfast, Lunch)
