Destination: Sulawesi, Indonesia
Activities: Hiking & Culture Tour

"Rantemario is the highest mountain in Sulawesi. It is located in the Latimojong Range, to the south of the Tana Toraja region, in southwestern Sulawesi. The top is a rather flat area (".rante". = flat, ".mario". = quiet). Rantemario, unlike most other Indonesian mountains, is not a volcano. It does not lie too far off the road from Makassar to Rantepao - part of the â.€.œ.beaten trackâ.€.. for visitors to Sulawesi - but getting to the mountain is a bit difficult. Rantemario is not very well known and not much frequented.
The ascent is a steep walk-up through mountain rain forest, which noticeably changes with the altitude. The path is divided into 8 sections. After each section there is a small, signposted clearing, called ".pos".. There are 8 â.€.œ.posâ.€.. altogether, â.€.œ.Pos 8â.€.. being the summit. The walking distance between two â.€.œ.posâ.€.. is 30 to 60 minutes. The trek is not difficult, nor is it dangerous, though between ".Pos 2". and ".Pos 3". the trail is in part a bit slippery, especially in wet conditions. The ascent from the starting-point (1,450 m) to the top takes 7 to 8 hours. The difference in altitude is 1,990 m.
Try to be at the top at sunrise, not only to experience a beautiful sunrise but also to have the best chance of getting a clear view. Later the view may soon be blocked by clouds coming up from the rain forest. You can camp at ".Pos 7". and walk up to the top before sunrise
