Moun Ijen Trekking – Ijen Crater is a group of strato volcanoes, in Java, Indonesia. The active crater at Kawah Ijen / Ijen crater It is inside a larger caldera Ijen, which is about 2 kilometers wide. The Gunung Merapi strato volcano is the highest point of that complex. The name of this volcano resembles that of a different volcano, Mount Merapi in central Java, also known as Gunung Merapi; there is also a third volcano named Marapi in Sumatra. The name "Merapi" means "fire" in the Indonesian language. East of Gunung Merapi is the Ijen volcano, which has a one-kilometer-wide turquoise-colored acid crater lake. The lake is the site of a labor-intensive sulfur mining operation, in which sulfur minner-laden baskets are carried by hand from the crater lake floor. Many other post-caldera cones and craters lake are located within the caldera or along its rim. The largest concentration of post-caldera cones forms an east/west-trending zone across the southern side of the Ijen caldera. The active crater lake at Kawah Ijen or Ijen Crater has an equivalent radius of 361 metres (1,184 ft), a surface of 0.41 square kilometers (0.16 sq mi). It is 200 meters (660 ft) deep and has a volume of 36 cubic hectometers (29,000 acre·ft).
An active vent at the edge of the lake is a source of elemental sulfur, and supports sulfur mining operation. Escaping volcanic gasses are channeled through a network of ceramic pipes, resulting in condensation of molten sulfur. The sulfur lake, which is deep red in color when molten, pours slowly from the ends of these pipes and pools on the ground, turning bright yellow as it cools. The sulfur miner break the cooled material into large pieces and carry it away in baskets. Sulfur Miner must carry loads, which range from 75 kilograms (170 lb) to 90 kilograms (200 lb), up 300 metres (980 ft) to the crater rim, with a gradient of 45 to 60 degrees and then 3 kilometers (miles) down the mountain for weighing. Most sulfur miners make this journey twice a day. A nearby sugar refinery pays the sulfur miners by the weight of sulfur transported; the typical daily earnings were equivalent to approximately $13 US. The Sulfur miners often use insufficient protection while working around the active crater lake and complain of numerous respiratory afflictions. There are 200 sulfur miners which extract 14 tons per day or only 20 percent of the daily contincontinuously.
