The Great Volcano


Maragaret Young

"Climbing is as close as we can come to flying."


Raung (Indonesian: Gunung Raung) is one of the most active volcanoes on the island of Java in Indonesia. It is located in the province of East Java and has a 2-kilometre-wide (1.2 mi) and 500-metre-deep (1,600 ft) caldera surrounded by a grayish rim. Last eruption: 2015


The following pages will be filled with video based story. The footages is a combination clip taken by me and my friend from Surabaya (SUB), Aswin Wiyatmoko. All video edited by Me.

Finally arrived at our guide's house. And we knew exactly the first thing to do : EAT! ;)

And the following day, the great journey begins.

Arrived at 1st Post. The house of Pak Soeto at the Village of Wonokromo.

And the trekking to the 3.344 M Above sea level is ON!

First Camp

The following day, last camp before summit attack.

Summit attack was started at 2 am, but i started to use my camera around 6 am. Check the next pages. Some photos from the magnificent Raung.

"On top of the mountains where everything makes sense."

Arrived at the summit of Mount Raung. 3.344 M Above Sea Level.

"Somewhere between the bottom of the climb and the summit is the answer to the mystery why we climb."
