Sadly too misty for an early start but went up at 6am instead. It's the rainy season now so bear in mind the trail could be slippy. Walking boots may be better. Some scrambling/climbing but the view at the top was well worth the effort.

First time to witness an active volcano still billowing smoke. We hike for a short distance and come down because of strong winds and grey sky. Instead we go for hot spring spa.
Since the Sinabung volcano is "red zone", this is the only way you can walk to have a panoramic view all around. It's a pity that the path is polluted by plastic bottles and cigarette butt, but it's worth the climbing.
