When Fransz Junghuhn ascended Mt Panggrango-(3019 m,) for the first time in 1834 he surprisingly spotted a pair of Rhinos grazing by the waterhole at Mandalawangi-(3010 m). During that time he was also following Rhinoceros tracks the most easy access to reach the summit.
We don’t bring any navigation equipment like compass, altimeter or GPS, except a new Edition Digital map, (quiet accurate except some of the names were misplaced); the trekking was mostly based on experience and instinct only. Just like wild animals travelling we don’t cut the forest and tried to leave as minimal as possible tracks along the way.
Where have all the Edelweis bushes gone? It’s probably gone due to the Global warming, it disappeared from Pasir Halangrug and around the summit of Mt Gede, within less than 40 years only .
