Doro Oromboha (known locally as “Ndindi”) is located to the west of the town of Bima, about 25 kilometres in a straight line (or just over an hour on motorbike). The trailhead is at the hill village of Padende (795m) where you will be asked to leave a copy of your passport photo page, or other contact details. Not many hikers climb into the forests of Doro Oromboha, preferring the ascend the steep, bald pyramid hill called Doro Leme – which is clearly visible from the trailhead – and from the summit of which you can clealry see Sangeang island.
The trail up towards Doro Oromboha leads gently up through farmland and follows a water pipe before reaching a river (950m) in less than an hour. The trail disintegrates here into many vague paths which may or may not end suddenly at at a pile of chopped logs, and you have to weave you way up towards the right to reach the shoulder of the mountain. Here you take a left and follow the shoulder up to the peak itself. Waypoints or trailmarkers are advisable as this is easy terrain in which to become lost.
