Pretty difficult to get the scale of this amazing place into an Instagram post.
We climbed it without much research, or thinking too much about safety, assuming there would be no issues. On reflection that was pretty naive. Thoughts with all those affected in NZ's volcano eruption, and all the guides who risk their lives every day taking tourists to the summit, many for very little money but all with smiles on their faces!
The left of the first shot is the outer crater rim at low level as it heightens and continues to circle right around the volcano in the middle. The brown in bottom right is the base of the volcano itself, and the black in top right is burnt ground from previous eruptions. The water is a lake in the middle of the crater - a deep greeny blue, and the yellow is what I think is probably sulphur that comes from the lava as it seeps into the water. I'll never forget waking up to this view but I'll definitely think twice about doing anything similar in the future. 2nd shot taken from the campsite at a wider angle, 3rd shot taken looking back at where our tents were, on the top of the ridge. 🌋🏕️
Selamat rehat, sahabat
Cerita sedikit tentang Rumah Adat Sasak Ende
Rumahnya hanya ada 1 ruangan tanpa sekat, beratap rendah yg terbuat dari ilalang. Tiang rumah ditancapkan ke lantai yg terbuat dari tanah. Uniknya, setiap seminggu sekali lantainya di pel dengan kotoran sapi
Hal unik lainnya dari tradisi Suku Sasak Ende, laki-laki dari umur 7tahun tidurnya diluar rumah, hanya perempuan yg tidurnya di dalam rumah
Dapurnya terpisah dari rumah utama dan ukurannya tidak lebih besar dari rumah utama
