This was taken on my recent trip to Bali with my girlfriend. We set off at 1am in the morning right after our flight to climb Mt Batur~ an active volcano located north west of Mount Agung Bali, Kintamani. The volcano is still active with its last eruption in 1968.

The climb was approx 700m which took around 2 hours. It was not an easy climb, as there were solidified lava along the steep path making it even more difficult in the dark. But once we got to the top it was well worth this magnificent view of the lake with the sun rising from behind the mountains.
