Take you with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I’m on the top of the world
– Imagine Dragons – On the top of the world
Picture above is my favorite shot, taken from Mount Ciremai last year. For your information, Mount Ciremai is the highest peak in West Java. Its altitude is 3078 m.a.s.l The picture has a great view. The mounts captured are “neighbour” of Mount Ciremai. They are Mount Sindoro, Mount Sumbing, and Mount Slamet. These mounts are located in Central Java.
This trip was held last year. It was my 2nd experience in mountaineering. Mount Ciremai, however, offered unforgettable moment in my life. Cold, humid, and foggy forest are the offering. How about the track? Well, I’ve described it in another post, so I will not tell the whole detail. (See Ada Cinta di Ketinggian: Edisi Ciremai).
Well, I took the picture when I was climbing from Sanggabuana checkpoint (-/+ 2500 m.a.s.l) to Pangasinan checkpoint (2800 m.a.s.l). It was a summit-attack. By the way, Summit-attack is an attempt to reach the highest peak from the mount you climb. Unfortunately, I could not reach the peak but the picture above “healed” me from dissapointment. The clouds is unforgettable. The great view motivated me to be more well-prepared in the next trip because I am not a climber but I am just an ordinary man who seek “peace” among cold, foggy, and thin air.
