He is very punctual on time. On the way we see the beauty of Bali with his rice fields and temples. Alit speaks perfect German and know at all questions a propper answer.

We stay over night in a cleen and new lodge and taking time for time laps shots with our Canon Mark5. Our peak ascent begins at 2:00 in the morning. We puff like a grampus and staying happy on time to see the sunrise at the Agung.

To days later we meet Alit Suendra again: sight seeing tour to the volcano lake "Batur", the temple "Tannah Lot" and rich blooming angel trumpet bushes! This cannot be beaten!
