Mount Ijen is an active volcano on Java, Indonesia. It´s one of the most life-hostile places in the world. Sulphur is all around this place, it comes in thick clouds out of the crater walls, the lake is pure acid, the pH number of the water is 0.8. The colours at this place are unbelievable, the smell is terrible. It´s a place like hell.
