When anybody thinks of lava, they probably imagine a red hot liquid flowing down a rocky plain. But here's to shock all of you is the blue lava from Indonesia's Ijen volcano. The lava burns sulphur which takes the color of sapphire blue and it's called as the Blue Fire Crater. A photographer Reuben Wu has captured some beautifully scenic pictures of the mountain and they will blow your mind away!
Inside, the sulfur is heated at nearly 1,000 degree farhenite
It is a 2 hour long trek and then 45 minutes to reach up to the crater.
There are only a few volcanos that burn sulfur in the world but Ijen is the largest one.
Wu stayed there until after dark to capture the actual beauty of the sulfur lava and it is indeed, a breath taking sight!
