Hello “Dewi Anjani”

Riang banget,  tertawa yang renyah setelah summit… love a lot this picture

The journey is start from Sembalun Village, a trip taken about 6 hours to the first camp. Passing through savannah, forests, and hills… all the beautiful sights. Green trees, golden yellow color of the grass.. thats under the blazing sun decorated white clouds. Hmmm, i still can feel the atmosphere ❤

Don’t know why, . .  just feel happy when i’m look again the memories at Rinjani mountain. Is always wants to show off all the atmosphere, how do I look at the journey. The place, people, and all… beautiful memory for me.

This is one of story in my life,.. yeahhh <3. The third mountain thai i climb, after Papandayan and Lembu, 3726 highness MDPL. The most beautiful mountain in Indonesia.

Imagine how many times I took every picture :D…. after that, I’m always longing to return. Someday maybe…. This mountain that I missed ❤

One memorable occasion, when pursuing every inch of the rocks and soil. And one day, will i come again? Anjani Goddess…. hey you, let me to know, do you miss me too??

Closed in 2015, I was praying to get back. Rinjani…. the beauty of “Dewi Anjani”

Fell in love with you Rinjani, . . ❤

IMG_3584About Rinjani mountain : (From wikipedia)

Mount Rinjani or Gunung Rinjani is an active volcano in Indonesia on the island of Lombok. Administratively the mountain is in the Regency of North Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara (Indonesian: Nusa Tenggara Barat, NTB). It rises to 3,726 metres (12,224 ft), making it the second highest volcano in Indonesia.

On the top of the volcano is a 6-by-8.5-kilometre (3.7 by 5.3 mi) caldera, which is filled partially by the crater lake known as Segara Anak or Anak Laut (Child of the Sea) due to blue color of water lake as Laut (Sea). This lake is approximately 2,000 metres (6,600 ft) above sea level and estimated to be about 200 metres (660 ft) deep; the caldera also contains hot springs. Sasak tribe and Hindu people assume the lake and the mount are sacred and some religious activities are occasionally done in the two areas. On 31 October 2015, Mount Rinjani started erupting again

On the basis of plate tectonics theory, Rinjani is one of the series of volcanoes built in the Lesser Sunda Islands due to the subduction of Indo-Australian oceanic crust beneath the Lesser Sunda Islands, and it is interpreted that the source of melted magma is about 165–200 kilometres (103–124 mi) depth.

The geology and tectonic setting of Lombok (and nearby Sumbawa) are described as being in the central portion of the Sunda Arc. The oldest exposed rocks are Miocene, suggesting that subduction and volcanism began considerably later than in Java and Sumatra to the west, where there are abundant volcanic and intrusive rocks of Late Mesozoic age. The islands are located on the eastern edge of the Sunda shelf, in a zone where crustal thickness is apparently rapidly diminishing, from west to east.

The seismic velocity structure of the crust in this region is transitional between typical oceanic and continental profiles and the Mohorovičić discontinuity (Moho) appears to lie at about 20 kilometres (12 mi) depth.[13] These factors tend to suggest that there has been limited opportunity for crustal contamination of magmas erupted on the islands of Lombok and Sumbawa. In addition, these islands lie to the west of those parts of the eastern-most Sunda and west Banda arcs where collision with the Australian plate is apparently progressing.
