1. Blawan Acid Hot Spring And Waterfall

It is located in Bondowoso region, close to Catimore Homestay about 1 hour drive from Kawah Ijen base. Blawan area has acid waterfall and natural hot spring which came from acid water lake of Kawah Ijen.

As there is no public transport to get there from Banyuwangi, the only way is hire a private car and driver. The best time to get there is after hiking Kawah Ijen, 1 hour drive to Blawan and relax on the hotspring after very exhausted hike.
