SUNRISE ON PEAK
The sunrise on peak is also really spectacular, I really like it, even I had tried to huge it on peak. The photo on left side is me on peak trying to huge the last sunrise after waiting one hour on peak, photo captured by my friend Ajie. If you come to Java Indonesia, I recommended this volcano for its peak uniqueness and the sunrise of courses.
