We plan numerous hikes throughout the archipelago every year and there are loads planned for 2018 and beyond. Indeed, Dan rarely spends his weekends in Jakarta! These trips range from exploratory, pioneering missions to mountains very few people know about to easy weekenders up old favourites from Jakarta. All are welcome to join as long as they are sufficiently fit to not hold the group back, sufficiently determined to reach the true summit despite often challenging terrain, and sufficiently aware of how things don’t always go perfectly to plan in Indonesia!
Groups are normally 3 or 4 maximum in order to keep logistics simple. Costs are shared equally, treks are undertaken at own risk and no profit is made whatsoever by the leader. They can be gruelling at times but the memories are more often than not incredible – especially of dusk and dawn spent with an amazing panorama of distant peaks.
Back in the traffic-clogged real world, we also hold occasional meet-ups in central Jakarta to chat about trips both past and future over a few Bintangs. They are usually held at a Swiss-run restaurant near Gondangdia station in Menteng.
Please join the mailing list for information on trips and/or meet-ups by contacting us below. Both locals and expats welcome.
Dan, February 2018.
