Timor Leste

East Timor is a country comprised of the eastern half of the island of Timor. Its independence from Indonesia was formally recognized in 2002. The capital city is Dili.

The two mountains are both excellent hikes, although whereas the Matebean mountains are some of the most rugged terrain in this part of the world, the climb to the summit of Ramelau must be the easiest for a mountain of its height across the entire archipelago.

  1. It is offensive that you list Timor Leste under “Provinces” – it is not a province of Indonesia, but it is a separate country that suffered a bloody invasion from Indonesia that killed almost a third of the population before winning independence.

    • Yes, we are aware of that. We also list mountains in Sarawak and Sabah, both of which are in Malaysia. The site is guided more by geography (e.g islands) than by national borders – if/when other parts of the archipelago change their status then we will still list them on the site. The site does not only cover Indonesia – however only 6 out of over 300 peaks are ‘non-Indonesian’ so you can understand the tagline.

      The listing under province is more to do with WordPress designs and templates. If you feel so strongly about it you are welcome to make a donation so we can spend a few hours coming up with a new, more complex, menu bar / layout.
