Mt Ramelau aka Mt Tatamailau is situated in the central ranges of Timor Leste/ East Timor. The trip there will take you through winding roads climbing inland and the central ranges, passing the towns of Aileu and Maubisse. Preparing for the 3 hour trek to the summit, be reminded that although you are in a tropical island, at such altitude, the temperature drops to very cold overnight and early morning.
Watch spectacular sunsets and sunrises from the summit, the highest point of the country at 2963 meters above sea level. A statue of Our Lady was erected here by the Catholic Church during the years of Indonesian occupation, measuring 3 meters high.
Camping at the summit under the stars is amazing. In a clear night, wiith no lights anywhere near, star gazing is at it's best..
