A breathtaking view of Mt. Rinjani of Nusa Tenggara is what makes the journey worth taken. This is taken from atop the peak where I had hiked for at least 18 hours altogether. This is the mountain that teaches me a lot. Never underestimate a mountain no matter how physically prepared you are, for your mental strength might bring you down the drain. Through the thin and thick encountered throughout the journey, friendship bond was formed.
I see lush greeneries, spreading on the ground,
I see the pasture fed cows, grazing the grass,
I see mountains and mountains,
and neverending savannah,
I see people passing by, greeting each other,
Travellers, porters and locals…
Such is life in Rinjani,
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.
