Beautiful experience!!! Dewa informed us in the morning at what time he would pick us up. He was there 10 minutes before departure and reminded us of our passport and warm clothes. During the ride, Dewa always asked for us and took care of us. When we arrived, our guide Anton gave us tea, water for the ascent and the tour schedule. During the ascent, Anton was very friendly and provided us with a lot of interesting information during the hike. Anton kept taking photos and videos of us so that at the end we got a little video of him. After watching the blue fire and then the sunrise, we descended again. Overall highly recommended!!!
