Skywatch Friday: Evening Clouds Over Mt. Burangrang





Mt. Burangrang (local words: Gunung Burangrang) is one of the mountains that surround Bandung. It is located to the northwest side of the city and is about 2,057 meters (about 6740 feet) high.

Mt. Burangrang is quite popular among local mountain climbers and hikers. Its pristine forests and challenging contours and proximity to the city makes it an ideal place for weekend mountain climbers. A number of local mountaineering clubs and SAR (search and rescue) team often use it as their training ground. The Indonesian Marine Corp also has its exclusive (no public aceess) training ground on one of its valleys.

I took this photo a few weeks ago from one of the back roads that connects the northern part of Bandung and its western suburban town of Cimahi. This is a straight shot. Except for the watermarking and resizing, I did not do any post-capture editing on this photo.

Today's post is BANDUNG DAILY PHOTO'S participation in the weekly Skywatch Friday meme. To see other photos of the participating blogs of the meme, please follow the link.

Nice shot. The mountain doesn't look that high to me. But then I googled Bandung and found out that your city is almost 800 m above sea.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Wow Eki, that is some shot! Cantik sungguh :D

A few of my friends went shopping at Bandung and they said that's the best place to buy sarongs, batiks etc. Is it true? I want to visit Indonesia this year as I've never been there, was thinking about the crowded Bali or Jogjakarta...maybe Bandung is a good place :D

Truly, this picture is absolutely beautiful..isnt it wonderful how the sky never fails us.
