Afterward, you can secure your place before the crowd comes or you can just chill at the local shops where they sell hot teas or coffee with firewood in front of you. The sunrise is at 5:30 am but around 5 am, you can see the red color in the sky already. We recommend getting your place before 5:30 am, so you can capture the best moment without seeing the people in front of you.

The path is quite okay from Paltuding to the peak of Ijen Crater but from the peak to reach inside the crater, the path will be rocky and a bit slippery, so make sure you always mind your own steps.
