Mount Agung or Gunung Agung (3142 m) is a stratovolcano in Bali, Indonesia and the highest point on the island. It dominates the surrounding area and influences the climate of the island. The clouds come from the west and Agung takes their water so that the west is lush and green while the east dry and barren.
For the Balinese Mount Agung is a spiritual and holy place. For me it is a perfect opportunity to spend my Christmas Eve hiking.
