[Repost] Gede mountain expedition 2004.

I'm re-posting my Multiply entry about my experience in hiking Mount Gede in 2004. I was still in the second year of college. It was FUN, a blasting fun! I have been in love to the nature for forever and that year I finally could realize my dream to go hiking and reach the peak. Yes I did :)

It was 8 of us; 3 girls and 5 boys. We hiked from Cibodas track (I swear 'tanjakan setan' was the best track ever!) and we went down the mountain through Gunung Putri track. To go up we need almost a day. To go down? Only 3 hours (We ran like bunch of cheetahs! lol)

At the top of the mountain, I was praying Subuh and suddenly I cried. Hiking helps me realize how small I am in ALLAH's eyes. How beautiful HIS creation is it made me fall in love to the nature more and more.

I love hiking, and I kinda miss doing that now :( I hope someday I could do it again, before 30. Aamiin :)

Enjoy the scanned pics, unedited. We didn't have digicam back then so pardon for the grains and blurry effect.

Morning breakfast at Suryakencana, Gede Peak

Strike a pose first before continuing to the top ;)

This is the 2-side corners. If we go to the left, it will lead us to Gede, and right leads to Pangrango :)
