If we will continue the journey to Mount Arjuna then after we reached the summit of Mount Welirang we walked down about 10 minutes exactly toward the south. Forest pine forest which is traversed by passing through a ravine and suburban Twin Mountain Twin Mountain I and II after running 6-7 hours we will reach the peak of Mount Arjuna.
