Hiking Bali

Bali is still recovering from the bombings there several years ago, and many visitors are looking for ways to
appreciate this Indonesian gem other than hitting the resort areas. So some, like
this writer, set
out for the hills looking for killer treks and fairly vigorous hikes. The goal of this intrepid hiker was to scale
Mount Rinjani, the highest mountain in Indonesia outside Papua (formerly Irian Jaya). Leave your notions of Bali as a
tropical paradise at home if you’re trying this hike, It is a cold place that wil require you to pack long
johns.
