Opened my door to a stunning view of Mt. Rinjani majestically standing as the sun slowly blessed the mountain peaks with its rays. I sat and watched in awe at the beauty in front of me. I would be at the rim of the mountain tomorrow morning as I receive the same warmth of the sun.
After breakfast was done, dry bag packed, off I went with Ditte and Pak Alam (our guide) to the start of the climb. It wasn't such a steep start but I could feel my knees starting to hurt, and mind you, it's just the start! 40 minutes in and we got to only the Senaru gate where the climb actually starts! What did I get myself into?
