Of all the gems to uncover on a trip to Java in Indonesia, the Ijen volcano complex on the eastern tip of the island is one of the most captivating. A group of three volcanoes that sit over 8,800ft high, its John Lennon is Kawah Ijen (otherwise known as the 'Blue Volcano') which, at its crater, boasts a sulphur lake so acidic it glows bright turquoise by day and spits blue flames from its peak by night. Venture on a Ijen volcano complex holiday and you’ll see nature at its most extreme. For a close-up look at this blue beauty and a real taste of adventure, there is the option of scaling the volcano’s
jagged lunar-like exterior after dark to see the electric-blue fire in all its glory. Another option is to go during the day, when you can enjoy sweeping sights of the beautiful aquamarine lake (the largest acidic lake in the world – your pub quiz team can thank us later for that one). By daylight, your descent will be filled with views of the surrounding forests and coffee plantations that dominate the landscape. Ijen volcano complex holidays are an unforgettable reminder of the power of Mother Nature.
