Maybe you very know about this place, and by your knowledge of this resort it make you bore. Or you don't know the place very well, so you neglected it for one of your choosen place that should be visited?all depends on you
Here, I want to share something about my experience for my journey to Slamet mountain's peak. Slamet  Mt. is one of many highest mount on Java, it is the 2nd in ranking, after Semeru Mt. Slamet has 3432 metres above the surface of the sea (dpl) in tall. For central Java it is the highest mount. Slamet has good sustainability. I'm here, now in 19th, haven't ever seen this mount get an accident like another mountain that make spotlights earlier. For celebrate my independent day, my close friends and I have plan for the trip to this peak, and the plan get starting at september.
On September, 8th 2011 the plan has beggan. At 02.00 pm my friends and I has gathering at someone's home for prepare everything and to get knowing who want to come join us for the trip. We have gathering now, and we are 30. At 03.30 pm we start the trip. We picked up by a vehicle, to get closing the village near the legs of mount. Then we have arrived. We need to meet someone who know more about the mountain, to get an advice when we are get the trip, in here called "juru kunci"-the key-man-of the mount.
We continue the trip. We are getting the track, enter the jungle and get elevating. Walking around the track to find the right way to get the peak. At 05.07 pm at that day, we are now at Plawangan. The first place that show the way to get closer the peak. We take rest for the moment there, we eat our food. These are some photos at there :
