Balease (Tolangi)


Bagging It!

We currently know very little about this peak – it has been climbed by students from hiking clubs in Makassar and the trek takes about one week in total.

Apparently the peak called Balease is just 2,894m and the highest peak (3,016m) is known as Gunung Tolangi (or ‘Toelangi’) and is 2 kilometres south of Balease. However, SRTM data suggests that Balease might be higher, so it is best to visit both peaks to be sure until we have the definitive answer!
