Will I have time?

Following the map, it takes about an hour and 45 minutes to get to the mountain base depending on traffic... There are mostly direct roads with a few turns through some villages... Climbing up and back down takes about 45 minutes to an hour... Total time 4-5 hours...

Located along the main road up through Timor Island just before the Camplong Nature Park... At an open wide left turn intersection, turn left northwards and you immediately cross a small but wide open bridge and follow the winding road... Most taxi drivers know it as Gunung Fatuleu...

Anything to remember?

Bring warm clothes and sun cream as the air might be cooler but the sun still can damage your skin... Bring food and water for snacking on the way up and if you're worried about getting lost(we did on the way down) you can pay around IDR 5-25K extra to have a young energetic guide...

How do I get there?

It may be possible to catch a village bound bemo or bus in the direction of the Camplong Nature Park and get out at the wide open left turn intersection 5 mins before the park...

What can I do there?

The monsoon or rainy season between January and March needs to planned a bit better to avoid climbing in the rain which for obvious reasons could be extremely dangerous...

Because of the heat of the mid-day sun you should be careful between the hours of 9am - 3pm where the chance of severe sunburn is greatest...

Mount Fatuleu is great for any time of the day but for the most scenic views, it is recommended to reach the peak before he sun gets too high...
