Sunrise: Behind the beauty of Ijen Crater
Picturesque Kawah Ijen is the world's largest highly acidic lake and is the site of a labor-intensive sulfur mining operation in which sulfur-laden baskets are hand-carried from the crater floor. Think you have a tough job? Try carrying 100 kilos through a cloud of sulfur down the side of a volcano :)
The pictures below shows the miner carrying blocks of sulphur from the mine. Click on the picture for large view.
