Gunung Angsi

The pictures speak for itself. Ten of us went for this hike. It was a tough climb, at least for me. I have never hiked a mountain before. The peak of this mountain is at 825meter above sea level. It took us almost 4 hours to climb. Experienced hikers would take about 2 hours to hike up but inexperienced ones would take about 3 hours - 3 1/2 hours. We took longer because we got lost and had to back track for about half an hour.

What I dislike about hiking this mountain :-

1) LOTS of blood-sucking leeches. (yuck! yuck!)

2) A river to cross ( have to take off my shoes if the water level is high)

3) Hot and humid

4) Hillary hill - (we have to haul ourselves up)

5) View at the peak is lousy

6) Muscles ache everywhere for 3 days

What I like about hiking this mountain :-

1) After the hike, you feel good. 7 hours of exercise.

six dislikes verses 1 like. What do you say? Should I climb this mountain again? We shall see...
