Climb Mount Agung at sunrise

Not for the faint of heart -- or fitness -- this hike takes a cool 6-hours with a vertiginous ascent in the darkness of the night to arrive at the summit for a spectacular sunrise. The climb down however is possibly the hardest part taking another approximate 8-hours to descend.
