Same day trip to Ijen from Pemuteran ?

Hello,

Is it is possible to visit the Ijen crater on a same day trip from Pemuteran (no overnight in Ijen) ?

Do you know any agency that could organise it ?

Thank you.

not possible. travelling time to ijen takes awhile - ferry car and road to ijen in the last stages was very poor when i was there a few years ago. then the climb/walk takes a few hours plus time to look and enjoy. then the walk down and car back.

but anything is possible so if you left very early in the morning then you might get back very late at night. take food with you so you can eat while you drive. the driver needs to eat too so this may be a problem.

good luck

Hire a car and the driver to take you to Banyuwangi where you can get 4WD jeep to take you up to ijen and back. You should leave Pemuteran around 11 PM and will be back in Pemuteran about 1 PM the next day.

Have a great adventure

You have to allow yourself 13 hours with nothing going wrong, no holdups, not too long a queue at the ferry and not much traffic on the road.

Pemuteran - Gilimanuk +half hour queue aprox 1 hr 15 mins

Ferry aprox - 1 hr

Ketapang to Ijen return + climb aprox 8 hr

Ferry + queue aprox - 1 hr 15 mins

Gilimanuk to Pemuteran aprox 45 mins

It can be.

Leave as early possible from Pemuteran @ 06:00 with ordinary rent vehical and you will reach Ijen before 11:00. You can spent 3~7hours in Ijen with cruisser car 4x4 while your driver getting rest and food.

Get back to Pemuteran before dark and you will reach Pemuteran before mid night.

Feery will not soo bussy in early morning and late night. If you plan to stright away to Bromo than I may arrange your pick up from Pemuteran.
