GPS Tracks


GPS
Maps and signs on trails are relatively poor in Indonesia, and GPS devices are becoming more and more popular. On our GPS Tracks page you can download tracks that we have compiled from the community of hikers in Indonesia. Please contact us to contribute your tracks. Tracks are free to download, but we give no guarantee is given of their accuracy. Use entirely at your own risk! [more]

Guides


Guides
Guides are essential for many Indonesian mountains and many people like to arrange a guide in advance. In early 2016, Dan launched Gamkonora.com – a site for finding reliable local guides across Indonesia. This is not limited to hiking mountains. Contact us if you are a guide who wants to be listed, or if you’ve used a guide recently and want to recommend them. Please always check and confirm that a guide would like to be listed on Gamkonora.com. [more]

Trekking Advice


advice
Indonesia is among the most volcanically active countries on the planet, which means there are considerable dangers associated with climbing mountain peaks. Indonesian and international volcanology agencies and local village advice should be sought and respected – it really can be a matter of life and death. Check out our Trekking Advice before you climb.
