Located on the eastern tip of Java the Ijen Plateau is an ancient crater 134 sq km in area in which a trio of jagged volcanic peaks have been created that reach an altitude of 3,332 meters above sea level. Plantations have been long been established on the plateau's rich volcanic soil which also supports a diverse ecosystem of lush forests and abundant flora.

One of the main attractions of the area dazzling turquoise blue lake of Kawah Ijen, where local labourers mine the valuable sulphur deposits from the water's edge and carry mineral-laden baskets weighing up to 80kg back to their villages.

Ijen is the ideal place to break the journey for those travelling the exciting overland route between Java and Bali.
