    Bagging It!

    This Ribu is a twin volcano (with Bur ni Telong).There are apparently some fascinating megaliths and also hot springs on its slopes. Bur ni Telong is still active and it is not recommended you camp there due to the gases. Hike likely to take 5 days minimum. The old trig pillar is about 400 metres north of the true summit.
