Ijen Miner Tour

Hosted and Guided by Locals

The story began from a bunch of engineering college students made a social project in 2010 for Kawah Ijen miners in the village. We gave them basic English knowledge to be able to communicate with foreigners at Kawah Ijen. Those short-term projects finally stuck due to a lack of funding from the government. An idea came up to use any local resources to empower locals. Corporated with locals we established a locally based tour operator for foreign tourists with our very first destination being Kawah Ijen.
