Mt. Papandayan or Mt. Bromo, Anyone?

Hi, Explorers!

A few weeks ago, I happened to go trekking at one place called Kawah Ratu (direct translation: Queen Crater). It is located in Bogor – about 2.5 hours from Jakarta; it is still within the Halimun Salak National Park. The highlight of the place is the beautiful turquoise color river (or stream?) found near the crater itself. Although we still can see some boiling water puddle not far from there, however, surprisingly the flowing water is so cold! We can also dip inside the water to refresh ourselves after almost three hours of trek. The trail is not that hard, there are parts that have a similar terrain as Mt. Papandayan. Btw, I am planning for Mt. Papandayan Hiking this coming September!

Well, after such a long break from trekking or hiking, the “not that hard” trail still made almost my whole body aching the next morning (sweat!). Probably, I should arrange to go there one day for a short weekend getaway together. What do you think? :)

Anyway, there are some updates on the scheduled trips! You can always check it on our group calendar here or click on the photo below.

There are a few more new destinations added to the list. I also will organize one trip that once was so popular back then during our first few years starting the Indonesia Explorer Meetup Group, which is 6D5N Mt. Bromo, Mt. Ijen, Baluran National Park, and Menjangan Island! Reminiscing the good old times. :)

It will run on a similar itinerary with a few tweaks on the itinerary which I hope will even deliver a better travel experience together – it will start from Surabaya and end in Bali. I was hoping to share the final information together with this newsletter, however, I am still working on some pending details. I will only be able to release it likely by next week on Indonesia Explorer (Eazycation) Facebook Group!

That’s all I have for you for now. See you around soon!
