Finding 2 seasons in one time, dry season as we see the sands and spring as we see green hill. In short, breathtaking view!

Typical of all Indonesian mountain, the hike to the peak is challenging - 45 degrees hike on loose sand gravel and stones. Dangerous because stone will roll and hit people below you, and for every step uphill you take, you will slide down 2 steps....More
