Indonesia – Mount Rinjani

Located on the island of Lombok, Mount Rinjani is the second highest volcano in Indonesia. A wonderful but very difficult three-day trek is required to climb the summit, but offers unique scenery and an unforgettable adventure. T he phone's alarm clock rings and the screen illuminates the tent with a whitish light. Strident beeps resound strongly. Still half asleep, we start to get up slowly. It is 3:30 am, we are still tired from the day before and our legs are heavy. By leaving the tent, we see nothing. It is dark, the sun is not yet up.

Indonésie - Le temple de Borobudur à Java

Indonesia – Mount Bromo

Mount Bromo, on the island of Java in Indonesia, is a must-see destination. Whether by Jeep or on foot, the visit to the active volcano is magnificent and the landscape seems almost lunar. T he jeep goes straight ahead, full headlight. Nothing seems to stop it, not even the huge ruts punctuating the dirt road. At the back of the jeep, it looks more like a washing machine, so intense are the shocks. All this is covered by the noise of the roaring engine. In its wake, a thick cloud of dust rises but quickly dissipates in the darkness. A hundred metres ahead of us, a procession of yellowish lights, dots dancing in a lightless landscape. These points of light suddenly begin to float in the void and disappear sporadically. Then it is our turn to leave the dusty desert…
