Climbing a volcano

Hey dudes.


Some of our Indonesian friends asked us yesterday, if we want to go climb a volcano with them today. And we said fuck yeah.


So we are packing our stuff right now and we will go up there soon. There are two volcanoes surrounding the village where we live now. One is called Merapi and is still active, the other one is called Singgalang and it is not active anymore. Today we will go to Singgalang and maybe next weekend to Merapi. Singgalang is also a little bit higher than Merapi. The elevation of Singgalang is 2877 m (9439 ft).


There should be a crater lake on top of Singgalang and locals say that it is very deep, so who knows what creatures live in the lake.


We are going to stay up there for two nights in tents so wish us luck.


This also means that there will be no posts until monday, but make sure you come back on monday for some fresh stories.


Hatatitla!

  1. Good on you bro! I went mountain trekking one time in my home town, since I wasn't used to it the thin air got to me a little bit. :P

    I'd do it again if I had the chance.
