It was the end of the year 1999. Uud, Fredy and I prepared everything to go to Mount Lamongan in Lumajang, East Java. It was only 1 hour from Jember by bus.
Around 2 o'clock we arrived at Klakah village. The weather was cloudy. It seemed to rain. But it wasn't a problem for us. We walked around 30 minutes to the rest area before climbing Mount Lamongan.
People in the rest area shouted when the clock hit 12. They welcomed new year by singing together. The place was very crowded..
After welcoming the new year, we set out the top of the Mount Lamongan. Mount Lamongan wasn't high enough. It's only 1.600 meters above sea level.
The road was dark. It was full of bushes and stone. We walked slowly up the mount. It wasn't tiring at all because we enjoyed the trip.
After walking all night long, finally we reached the top of the mount. That was rainy and stormy. We couldn't see the crater.
We stayed one hour to enjoy the top although nothing we could see through the mist. But it was fun. We felt winning a race.
Demikian cerita pengalaman saya menikmati liburan tahun baru di puncak gunung bersama teman-teman semasa SMA.
