INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - In the midst of limiting extracurricular activities of nature lovers at various high schools in Jakarta, it did not make the spirit of doing activities in the wild to be vanished and lost meaning.
The high school nature lovers Club 68 Elpala successfully proved that nature lovers activities can achieve achievement by achieving MURI record as the first Indonesian Student Team to climb the highest peak of Indonesia, Jayawijaya, Carstensz (4,884 mdpl) on October 5, 2017.
This MURI Record was awarded directly by the founder of Indonesian World Record Museum, Jaya Suprana to 3 high school students 68 consisting of Shafira Dinda Ariefti, Geas Aldino, and Muhammad Iqbal Putra at Galeri MURI Jakarta on Monday (20/11), witnessed by Principal SMA 68 Adwiana Hardiyanti and 2 teachers, Tri Christiana Wardani and Widiartinny.
"On November 13, 2011, Elpala SMA 68 has also reached the highest peak of the African continent Kilimanjaro (5,985 mdpl) which was then represented by two students, Ganther Rizki Ariotejo and Kevin Adam Hermandi," said Elpala Founder, Dar Edi Yoga who has been successful bringing Sabar Gorky's sabadaksa climber to the top four peaks of the world.
He added that next year Elpala SMA 68 plans to climb the highest peak of Continent Europe, Elbrus (5,642 mdpl) in Russia by sending 3 female students and 2 male students.
With this MURI record, Dar Edi Yoga hopes to provide inspiration and motivation to the students of nature lovers in various high schools to be able to carve the achievements with positive activities. And hope that the school in Jakarta does not limit this extracurricular activity.
"The activity of nature lovers is the process of adolescent maturing itself, through nature we can learn various laws that exist on it," added Dar Edi Yoga.
