Dako

Facts

Bagging It!

Local student hiking groups have reached the top of the mountain, which is more commonly known as Gunung Galang. There are apparently 3 different routes, the quickest of which requires 2 days to reach the top (so presumably a day or day and a half back down). The city and airport of Toli-toli is only 20km away.

Practicalities

  • Getting there: Fly to Toli-Toli from Palu.
  • Accommodation: Presumably a few hotels in Toli-Toli.
  • Permits: Unknown
  • Water sources: Currently unknown.
  • Travel insurance: We recommend World Nomads insurance, which is designed for adventurous travellers with cover for overseas medical, evacuation, baggage and a range of adventure sports and activities including mountain hiking.
  • Local Average Monthly Rainfall (mm):

One thought on “Dako

  1. Things sound very promising indeed for a trip to Gunung Dako / Galang in the near future (2019 hopefully) as according to a local hiker there it can be hiked in 2 days and the airport is less than an hour from the last village. Getting to Toli Toli is the difficult bit…. there are limited and fairly expensive flights, mainly from Palu….. it could probably just about be done from/to Jakarta over a long weekend. Looking forward to giving it a try……
