The Malaysian Familiarization Trip (Famtrip) participant was amazed when visiting Ijen Crater on Monday (1/14/2019).
“Ijen is very special. Above we can see the Blue Fire which only exists in two places in the world. We can also see the lake with green water on the summit of Mount Ijen, sulfur miners, and Sunrise in the ijen crater, “said Editor of Airline Magazine Malaysia, Leon Lim Jake Li, in an official statement on Tuesday (1/15/2019).
The Blue Fire in the Ijen crater is a sulfur evaporation process that looks bright at night. After the day starts to light, the faint blue flame fades, but that does not mean the charm of Ijen disappears. In other parts, Ijen craters will look charming in turquoise green.
