Gunung Bagging has provided thousands of Indonesian and foreign hikers with English-language information on both well-known and obscure mountains and volcanoes across the Indonesian archipelago for eight years. From Sumatra and Java to Sulawesi and Kalimantan, there are many tens of peaks about which very little information is known – but ascents are probably achievable in most cases with local assistance.
We are now encouraging those in a position to fund future expeditions to get in touch with us – and even join us on an expedition if you are suitably fit, experienced and well-prepared.
Planning and leading a successful expedition or series of expeditions is a time-consuming and often costly endeavour. However, Gunung Bagging is a long-term initiative with an impressive track record. We hope our efforts will remain of great educational value to future generations of both local and tourist hikers, in addition to encouraging sustainable ecotourism in remote areas in the present day.
