// Sulawesi Selatan

South Sulawesi is comprised of the south western peninsula of Sulawesi island. The provincial capital is Makassar which has regular flights from across the archipelago.

The province contains Sulawesi’s two most prominent peaks, Rantemario and Moncong Lompobatang. Both are climbed regularly by students from Makassar. The most popular hike is actually Gunung Bawakaraeng which is Lompobatang’s slightly lower but equally impressive neighbour. Most other peaks in the province require much longer treks and are usually only climbed during student hiking expeditions lasting a week or more.
