At 3,726m, Mount Rinjani is the second highest volcano in Indonesia [source].
It is till date, the most challenging hike that I’ve ever attempted, due to the terrain. Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t crazy tough (at no time did I ever feel that I can’t go on further)… but it was the longest I’ve ever done, and even Mt Fuji can’t compare in terms of difficulty. Think walking 5 steps, only to slide back 2, along the trail to the summit!
3D2N it took. And yep, that meant camping out – my 1st time ever doing so *achievement unlocked* \(^_^)/
The reward? A gorgeous view from up there. Totally worth the effort! More details to be chronicled in the future. For now, picture time!
