Bagging It!


We currently know very little about this peak in Western Sumbawa except that it is also known by local people as Puncak Ngenges or Puncak Ngengas. One report states that it takes ten hours to reach the top from Desa Tepal and that there is a large trig pillar at the top.

UPDATE 2017: Ega Satria Anugrah and friends climbed this in August 2017. He suggests the height may be as much as 1871m. You need 4 or 5 days in total. Starting point is Marente/Marenteh which lies to the north of the mountain range.

A vague itinerary may be along the following lines….

Day 1: arrive in Sumbawa Besar on first flight from Lombok (Wings Air). Proceed to Marente and hike to Pos 3 (up to 10 hours total).

Day 2: Pos 3 to Pos 5 (9 hours).

Day 3: Pos 5 to summit (2.5 hours) and back down to Pos 3 (a full day of 12 hours possible).

Day 4: Return to Marente and on to a hotel.

Day 5: Fly out from Sumbawa Besar.

We hope to hike Olet Sangenges in 2018…….

One thought on “Olet Sangenges

  1. I was planning to hike this mountain as my final trek of summer 2018, but after the multiple and ongoing earthquakes in nearby Lombok (some with epicentre only 50km away) it seemed sensible to postpone indefinitely.
    There is no ordinary trail, and we had planned for 3 nights in the forest. I was then hoping to stay on the Gilis for 2 nights but many of the buildings there have collapsed and there could be further devastation and earthquakes. SO best steer clear for the time being.
    If anyone gets round to this, good contacts are Bang Jale (08234 1162314) in the village of Marente and Yudi (0823 4149 4671) in Sumbawa Besar where the nearest airport is.
