Very scenic mountainous area by the crater, especially in the morning. It's around 3.5km hike towards to the top and you can get very good view of the area, including the mine, the workers, lake and mountain surrounding. Wear warm clothing as temperature and wind is unpredictable. Ijen is actually closer from Banyuwangi city or get a ferry from Bali and drive there.

The Ijen Plateau is the 'other' star of East Java -- a lush upland region that many visitors to nearby Mt. Bromo pass up, which is a shame, because Ijen (and in particular its volcanic crater lake, Kawah Ijen) upstages its cousin in many ways. The lake itself is stunning, a 3km easy uphill hike from the trailhead, culminating in a climb down into the blasted landscape to its shores -- perfectly turquoise and surrounded by a massive plume of sulfur vapor. The photo opportunities are incredible, with miners hauling 60kg baskets of brimstone up out of the badlands all day long -- bring a camera and loose cigarettes for tips.
