This rarely-climbed Ribu is the highest peak on the island of Seram and is part of the Manusuela National Park. Fly from Jakarta to Ambon and take a boat to Seram. The trail starts at only a few metres above sea level so it is quite an undertaking. You will need guides and several nights camping in the mountains. There is a route from the north and a route from the south, as follows:
Route from the north: Huahulu Halte – Huahulu Village (126m) – Roho Village (82m) – Kanikeh (595m) – Waiwuhu (2105m) – Waifuku – Biniaya summit ridge.
The route from the south starts at Piliana (approx 430m) and goes via Aimoto Camp and Nasapeha Camp.
The true summit appears to be the peak about 1.5km northwest of the usual destination for hikers.
