My first hiking trip..

There is always a first time to do something you have not done before. This time around, for me, it would be hiking. Not just hiking up a hill behind my house but really hiking at about 3000++ meter mountain. I wanted to try doing this activity because I want to see the view from above, not from the top floor of a skyscraper, not from the window pane of an airplane..but really be on top of a mountain and enjoy the scenery it can offer. It doesn’t matter which mountain, as long as it is more than 2000 meter. I think that’s quite high enough..hehe..

Just as I was planning my hiking trip somewhere, my company was also organizing a hiking trip to Mount Rinjani, Indonesia. What a perfect timing! After I gathered some info about this trip and find it quite okay, I cancelled my plan and registered myself to go to this Mt. Rinjani company trip which was held from Aug. 29 until Sep. 3, 2015.

I had a great time during this trip though I must say it is a tough and tiring one. I got to meet new people & walk along the nature for four (4) days straight. What a beautiful sight though it was scorching hot throughout the way except at the mountain top. But the one thing I like most during this trip is being cellphone-less. Being disconnected from the world and surround myself with the sound of nature is like a privileged to me, although there is signal from time to time..haha..I got to experience how to live in the wilderness like using the restroom without a toilet bowl and walking 7 hours return to take a hot bath in the hot springs at Danau Segara Anak.
