Different mind different character different experience, yeahh now I was with another friend, let me introduce them one by one.
A Consina freak , an old sloppy jackass guy, a master chef of mountain, he would talk shit if you kid him, please welcome Adhe rully febriansyah, we always pretended him as our inspirator haha..
A calm-killed dad, mr. slowly but sure, always slept first (probably he wanted to escaped from the reality), part of old dynamic duo adhe and him, sometimes he imitated adhe’s joke, it means unoriginal haha. He is Rangga bhrataranu
I just met Asep for the first time, i was not so close with him,he was a nice guy with sunglass all the time.
Last but not least, Ricky (Ricky…was a young boy he had a heart of stone) he was still young boy but he had a heart of flower. He has Eric martin-esque voice with melanosoid face
we just arrived from cawang-uki to garut bus station, started from 12.15 am till 04.30 am, still sleepy but fun and we’re going to drink our first cup of of coffee to made sure everything was gonna be well (for your info, I was wearing Komunaltee, one of my favorite stoner rock band from bandung, they called their music “Rock Petir” yeagggghhhhhhhhhhh )
from bus station we’re heading to somewhere (arghhh forget the name!! god bless me)to rent a pick up car with others. It was crowded and damaged road but stimulate your adrenalin to the max.
shine bright like a sun, look at to the triangle, it was mount cikuray, in west java there are “Fabulous Four “ Papandayan, Ciremay, Cikuray, Guntur. Hopefully I’m gonna explore them soon.
five stars mean classic, four stars mean excellent, 3 star means good, two stars mean fair, one star means poor. Oh cmon man! This not review haha, we arrived at first shelter and the rest was history LOL
started to hike on 08.30 am, when the sun was going be cruel for you, you know we really enjoy the trip, we spent one a half hour for breakfast, coffee (again???), tea then fried rice
if you are into Sigur Ros (I’m not J), it looks like hill in Iceland cmiiw, my mate ever showed Sigur Ros video on youtube they played in outdoor stage, as long as I watched it, the background was a bit similar with this and another similarity was you can see your breath when you take a breath.
we would pass to the crater, all the things here are full of sulfur. Stones, grounds, air, it seemed every people are farting together haha
here came the crater, yes, Papandayan is a volcano and Garut often got the volcanic earthquake especially when Papandayan is growing.
the gorgeous landscape, we got the fresh air here, when you still have forest you still can breath
was this a mountaineer band ? haha I didn’t know man, when somebody captured me, spontaneously I act like member of band, probably the dream is stil not coming true. Actually we took a rest here while capturing some moments, oh yeah we are living in developing country, you might find many people smoked everywhere even when you were in the jungle. I am not smoker even drinking alcohol, people call me “straight”, “straight edge “ or whatever,thats’s so innocent. When you like or you dislike something, you stand for it and you don’t pretend, be you’re self no matter what they say and I think that’s more than healthy lifestyle, for me my habit become my principle.
this was the route we must pass through, sunny day didn’t make you lazy and down. A long and hot road
Adhe was so damn funny! Yeah you know he had a sloppy face and unique gesture, he can made us laugh. I got some quotes from Time “why the funniest man is also the saddest” according to Robin Williams. funny men look always happy and can entertain people to hide his own sadness. They also joke to escape from their reality life. When they are in to the sorrow, they have more suicidal tendencies than others. Hahahaha so adhe beware!
bring carryall on my backbone make eyes tired, gonna sleep all day and dream all night at hoeber hut. We almost spent one a half hour again to take a rest, praying zuhur and waiting for adhe. He slept tight under shady tree.
finally we reached pondok saladah after looking around the good place for setting up the tent, we had three tents for five men, it was too many . Time to have lunch and let the chef do the cooking.
we’re the youth gone wild, we’re trying to find another way to reach the top of papadayan, without asking anybody except our master adherullyfebriansyahlol. So we’re hiking to another hill (me ,ricky and asep, two of old guys stayed in the tent lol). We’re assuming that we would find people there, but we’re totally wrong haha.
after getting to the top, we’re trying to find the true way but no result, so we decided to smoke (but me) first, took a breath than thought the new idea then we climbed down slowly because of cliff beside us. I don’t forget to capture all moments here. When your friend was getting panic in abnormal situation, you had to calm them. I broke out the way then my fellow followed me, everything is gonna be alright.
we found the way, we met with others so we’re on our way, we got tegal alur. It was like edelweiss garden, absolutely gorgeous, someday I will take someone special here. The papandayan keeper said “you had to come back before 12 pm beware of the falling clouds” we saw the watch it was almost 11.30 am, how came we can reached the top of papadayan only 30 minutes from tegalalur. But we didn’t give a shit about that, go go faster, we were on a half of way so keep going on.
getting lost in other hill then trying to pursue the peak made us more tired, we just had the water, we didn’t bring any food. No pain no gain motherfucker!!
yeagggghhhhhhh we got here!!! No special things here, no beautiful landscape, no clouds under us no object to capture but what I do appreciated the spirit of my buddies. Cheers buddies!!
we climbed down back again and ofcourse! We’re more faster. We found the creek, source of water for mountaineer, you can drank in a cold and frosty day
tegal alur for the second time, we quite satisfied it was almost 02.30 pm
it was not a good photo, I didn’t get any edelweiss anymore, the immortal flower
after hiking a whole day, let started the night with torch light dinner, we had dinner shined by torch. Adhe cooked noddle for us.
the last man packing : my tent was hard to dry, so we waited for it after Saturday, Sunday and Monday we’re going back, mamaaa I’m coming homeeee (hey my mom is in padangsidimpuan).
we put together trashes to the trashbag, it’s our obligation to make our camping area clean like before we came. We had to keep it fresh and comfortable.
again..sunny day made our face looked old haha, we’re on the way to shelter one
actually we’re going to rent the pick up car, but the driver was still waiting other pessenger, no option. We had to get bus station as soon as possible, we left him and went with motorcycle, and I sung every single time on it. So long papandayan!!
