// Sulawesi Tengah

The provincial capital of Central Sulawesi is Palu, one of Indonesia’s driest cities.

Most of the mountains here are remote and infrequently climbed. The most accessible Ribu is Sidole which is close to Palu. Even closer to Palu is Gunung Gawalise which is often climbed by local student hikers.
