Mount Rinjani, Indonesia
Photograph by Lidya Ally
Dragging his feet, a lone hiker makes a summit bid for Mount Rinjani. Rinjani, located on the island of Lombok, is the second highest active volcano in Indonesia. The top of the volcano is home to a stunning crater lake known as Segara Anak and is believed by local people to be sacred. The trek to the rim is considered one of the most difficult in Southeast Asia, although many attempt to conquer the peak in the early morning to experience the spectacular sunrise.
