While I still have the time on my hand (I am pretty sure that once my son is born, I’ll be a lot busier) I want to share all my hiking post…and if possible all my movie reviews…however, hiking post is my current priority.
This hiking took place about a year ago, September 27, 2015. It was a date hiking and it wasn’t really a mountain, more like a hill. Only 1119 meters above sea level and it only took 1.5 hours of walking if we were hiking seriously…BUT since it’s a date hiking, it took about 3 hours for us. We stopped in some warung to chat and spend more time together.
I wanted to go hiking so badly but since we weren’t yet married at that time, it was impossible for us to go hike a real mountain (the one that requires staying a night in a tent). We were saving up for the wedding and we didn’t want to spend a night together we weren’t yet halal…hence we went to this hill.
We went very early, around 6 am and arrived in Parung around 7 am. We ate breakfast in one of many warung there (I will show you what warung is soon!).
The entry ticket was really cheap. We began with walking on a bamboo bridge and pass through alley of bamboos.
Here’s the warung where we took our first rest. Basically, warung is a shop that sells drinks, cigarette and snacks.
We continued our hike and even though it’s not a high mountain but the view was still like most mountain…greenery everywhere, with extra big rocks.
Then we passed these huge rocks piling up on each other and create a very sort cave.
On the other side of that ‘cave’ there was an alley made of huge tree’s roots. I love taking picture of that roots.
Next was heading to that 2 rocks on top (you can see it on the first picture). On the way there, we passed more big rocks and tall trees.
To reach the top of those two big rocks, we had to climb using rope…kinda like rock climbing.
The effort to get there worth the view.
However, that was not the summit. we walk a bit more to finally reach the summit. And the view like this
Such view or scenery is the reason why hiking is addictive 🙂
Unfortunately…where there is human there is trash 😦 I wish people can keep their trash to themselves. From what I saw, the trash was not only from the visitors but also from the people running the warung. And from a far I could see some kind of mine taking place there.
Despite those disappointing view…overall, it was a fun one day hike. When we were there, there was this family with their kids and we started talking about when we have kids we will also take them hiking to enjoy nature like we enjoy it.
Well…we are about to have one now and I am already can’t wait to see him grow and have our first family hiking 😉
I will close this post with my favorite picture of that day…which then I used as pre-wed picture on my instagram 😉
