Licin is one of the city used as a base camp by Ijen hikers. It is located at about 15 kilometers far from Banyuwangi. If you are heading from Bromo, you are most likely to be exhausted from the short nights and the long hikes. Licin is the perfect place to rest and discover a peaceful village before heading to Ijen.
There are a lot of wonderful things to explore in Licin and its surroundings. Expect incredible green paddy fields, remote waterfalls (Jagir, Kethegan and Kalibendo) and some of the most welcoming people on earth. All of that within walking distance from Licin!
Getting to Licin is as simple as stopping at the Karangasem train station instead of the one of Banyuwangui. Most homestays and guesthouses include a pick-up from the train station and a solution to make your way to Ijen!
