Bagging It!

This Ribu is one of the most isolated volcanoes in Indonesia. It takes several days to reach from the nearest village and is therefore rarely visited. It has four summit peaks, which is probably the reason for its name which means ’square’ in Acehnese. The access point is the village of Lutung, which is about 200km from Banda Aceh. The path is via Geumeu plantation.

Origins and Meaning

Peuet Sagoe means ‘four corners’ in Acehnese (Mark Durie, 2011) which refers to the four summit peaks. Therefore it is presumed that ‘sague’ is a corruption of the original ‘sagoe’.
