Overnight excursion to the Kawah Ijen (lonely crater) volcano and lake near Banyuwangi and the Belawan Hot Springs and Waterfalls. Mount Ijen is home to the rare “blue fire” phenomenon, where you can witness dancing blue flames from the high pressure release of sulfuric gasses. This phenomenon is known to occur in only two places world wide.
The Kawah Ijen crater lake is the largest acid lake in the world, and one of the most spectacular views you will ever experience.
