We will start at midnight from hotel or Homestay at 12.00 for about 1,5 hours drive , and arrival in Paltuding Parking Car hike up and into the volcano’s crater. It’s no easy task—you’ll trek more than four miles and ascend to heights of nearly 10,000 feet, with only the light of the moon to guide you—and that’s if it’s out. Starting off the list is climbing  Ijen crater, where you can enjoy the sight of blue flames on its crater. The flame is a reaction caused by combustion between sulfur that comes in contact with air.  The climb to Ijen is quite a trek but the view from the top of the peak is very rewarding. Trying to catch a glimpse of the blue flames is quite a task as it requires a strenuous climb and the flames do not occur every day. Also, you have to leave around midnight and arrive in the crater area early dawn to see just how spectacular it truly is. We advise that you wear a mask once you’ve reached the crater to protect you from the sulfur. Around the time the clock strikes three or four, you’ll have arrived at the bottom of the crater, and laid your eyes upon one of the most alien sights on our planet: Blue fire spewing out of the ground! The vibrant blue hue of these flames, which results from heavy sulfur deposits in the volcano, is best seen during the darkest part of the night, hence your needing to wake up long before the crack of dawn.trekking back down to parking area and arrive hotel usually at 09.00 am
