We had our last breakfast at Biyukukung and enjoyed the fabulous view one last time.

-

-

We got picked up by our driver at 9 who took us higher up into the mountains and through some splendid country side with spectacular views.

-

-

Our destination was Munduk, about 700 meters above sea level, and the view from this bungalow was even more spectacular!

-

-

The bungalow was very nice with our own terrace. No AC is required as the temperature is slightly cooler at this altitude.

-

-

We really loved our special bathtub 🙂

-

-

We prepared ourselves for our environment trek with proper outdoor clothes and shoes and got picked up by our guide Juri. Juri was very nice and being the son of a local farmer and lived his whole life here farming and guiding these tours he was very knowledgeable.

-

-

The decision to go with outdoor clothes proved to be a well-made move. The terrain was at times very trying and a slip could have easily gone very bad, or very wet at least…

-

-

We saw some very beautiful views,

-

-

-

-

a lot of wildlife,

-

-

-

and Fredde even managed some degree of control with his arachnophobia and was getting close and comfy with a fairly sized spider (~10cm including the legs). The camera turned out to be more afraid of the spider than Fredde as it refused to focus, so unfortunately no nice picture of the cute spider. But Greet managed to get a fairly good one of Fredde trying his best with the camera…

-

-

We learned a lot about rice, cacao, coffee and many more local grown crops and how farm it.

A very special coffee is made from beans that have fallen from the tree and eaten by a palm civet. The palm civet eats the coffee fruits and poops out the beans which are then roasted, sounds pleasant right?

-

-

-

-

It’s not as bad as it seems as the bean is inside a protected layer…  The coffee brewed of these beans is so popular that it has become the most expensive beans in the world!

Our goal of the trek was a beautiful waterfall and was well worth the effort 🙂

The sunset from our bungalow was amazing to watch 😀

Unfortunately the day did not end as well as first Greet got a bad stomach and later during the night Fredde aswell :-(. We hardly got any sleep as we spent most of the time sitting on or looking down the toilet…
