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.
