About Blue Flame or Blue Fire at Ijen Crater

It seems incomplete if you explore Ijen Crater without exploring Blue Flame. The location is at the bottom of the crater. It is also the location of the mining site that spews out sulfuric gases. The blue flame is coming from the burned sulfur. The hot temperature reaches over 300 degrees Celcius that burns the sulfur and creates blue flames. Travelers can only see the beauty of blue flames during night time. It is also the only natural flame in Indonesia.
