Ijen caldera, Ijen crater lake and the cones of the caldera – East Java, Indonesia

Published: 29th October 2021

Visited Ijen volcano in East Java again on the 27th October. My main objective from the visit was to explore some of the cones of the Ijen (Kendeng) caldera. A bonus was some aerial shots of the crater lake. Weather was overcast in the morning and thunderstorm with rain in the afternoon.
