Stirling Ridge Walk

The Stirling Range is unique in many, many ways. Suddenly and abruptly rising from amongst very flat, nondescript lowlands, the range is a prominent feature in the landscape and can be seen clearly from vast distances. Spectacular cloud formations are frequently seen here, which explains the Aboriginal (the Wagyl Kaip people being the traditional custodians) name for the range, 'Koi Kyenunu-ruff', which means ‘mist rolling around the mountains’.

Mount Bromo

I had read up a bit on Surabaya prior to the trip and because it was reputed to be mainly a commercial metropolitan area without many attractions, I had decided to instead head straight for Probolinggo which lies about 45km from the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park on the North coast of East Java.  To get to Probolinggo from Juanda International Airport, I had to board a Damri bus that was heading to Surabaya's Bungurasih bus terminal (also called Purabaya) and board another bus to Probolinggo from there. The Damri bus (pronounced 'bis' in Bahasa Indonesia) just lay outside the airport arrival terminal and the fee only amounted to IDR15k (RM5). Read more



I climbed out of the Shwe Mandalar express bus groggily and somewhat curmudgeonly after being rudely awoken by the strident cry of the bus driver just as the bus squeakily rolled to a stop. Despite the lack of sleep, I found to my surprise that the bus ride had been far more comfortable than I had anticipated. For some reason I had expected the eight and a half hour ride to be on a cramped and very crowded bus that was not too dissimilar to the one that I had taken to get to Bromo. This was most likely due to all the horror stories of the road conditions in Myanmar that I had heard, stories that I think are probably only applicable to rural areas and possibly the ride from Bagan to Inle Lake.
