The view at dawn and sunrise is difficult to describe, it needs to be seen and experienced. Get some warm clothes and arrive early to get a good spot for the volcanoes view and wait for the sun to rise. You may enjoy some grilled bananas (they are delicious) and hot tea while waiting.

Often crowded with people, very steep climb from Pondok Seruni. Not for young children and elderly people.
