Mount Salak – 2211MDPL, Day 1 (Part 2): The Wonder of Kawah Ratu

Today, I will not write about my hiking but it’s still related to my hiking on Mount Salak, Bogor.

As I have said in my previous post ( Mount Salak – 2211MDPL, Day 1 (Part 1) ) I want to share 13 pictures of Kawah Ratu (Queen Crater) because I think the view here is the best during my hiking on Mount Salak. When I first arrived, I was awed by all the smog. But the sulfur smog didn’t smell as worst as in Mount Papandayan, maybe because at that time the wind was blowing the other direction.

Before reaching there, we found a yellow stream thick with sulfur residue


I like seeing this huge rock, right before we reached Kawah Ratu. Too bad there were some left over from stupid people who thought that gravity is cool.


The view when we reached Kawah Ratu. It’s in panoramic mode, you can click on the image to see it better.


The barren path we passed before reaching Kawah Ratu.


The stunning view of smog in Kawah Ratu. Click on the image to see it better (panoramic mode)


These pictures are not in panoramic mode, it can give you clearer view




The barren path we must take to continue our journey.


Another panoramic mode from another angle.


Leaving Kawah Ratu behind to continue our hiking on Mount Salak.


The sulfur smog had killed the tress around it. I like how the tress looked more like a fossil than just a dead tree.


Do excuse me for sharing my own pic as the last pic 😉

The writing on that green wood is: Welcome to Active Queen Crater (Kawah Ratu). Do Not camp here for any kind of activity. You are now in dangerous area!


I will continue my hiking on Mount Salak this Saturday 🙂

I think the post will end up with about 4 posts in total. It was a fun  hiking and I have so much to share.

Happy TT everyone.

    The landscape looks like something from an alien planet. In Indonesia I guess you’re pretty aware that the planet is alive, with all the volcanoes and thermal vents that dot the landscape and the earthquakes you have. Where I am we have none of that.

      I know. I have been to other craters but this one is the best, so much smog .. it makes it looks like an alien landscape.

      We live in the ring of fire, where the earth is most active.

    Great photos! The place looks stunning (and slightly worrying). Looks like you walked into Mordor! Did you pass any Hobbits?

    What a forbidding place. Did you really need the sign?

      Yes!! sometimes, people are ignorant when there’s no sign

        That’s a sad commentary on the stat of human intelligence. Is it no real if an official doesn’t say it?
