Severe fire occurred on the Mount Raung ascent, East Java, Friday (10/04/2019) night.
One of Mount Raung's guides who was trapped during a fire, Sam Bahri, said the hiking trail was now getting cut off.
"A lot of fire that burned trees then fell," Sam said when contacted on Saturday (05/10/2019).
Sam told that he was trapped with 12 other climbers on Friday (4/10/2019). He was carrying the 7 climbers from Singapore to climb to the top of Raung, known as the the Sterling Summit (Puncak Sejati).
But they did not get to the summit because there was a fire at post 7. Sam said he and the other climbers should built a tent there.
"I was supposed to go to the camp 7 but it caught fire, so it was stopped at camp 4," he said.
Sam continued, the condition of himself and other climbers are all safe and sound. Everything has been evacuated at the Mount Raung Climbing Secretariat in Wonorejo Hamlet (dusun).
The hiking trail of Mount Raung via Kalibaru until this news was revealed is still closed. The deadline for the closing is not yet certain. Sam said, this is because there are still many fires that burn the Mount Raung area.
"There has been no decision, the fire is still not extinguished," he added.
As information, the sterling summit in question is the only hiking trail via Kalibaru to the top of Raung.
This is the highest top of Mount Raung, with an altitude of 3,344 meters above sea level. (*)
