Local student hiking groups have reached the top of the mountain, which is more commonly known as Gunung Galang than Gunung Dako. There are apparently 3 different routes, the quickest of which requires 2 days to reach the top (so presumably a day or day and a half back down). The city and airport of Toli-toli is only 20km away.
According to the Bakosurtanal map, Bukii (Gunung) Galang is 2,253m and Bukii (Gunung) Dako is second highest at 2,162m and less than 1 kilometre further south-east. Gunung Galang looks pretty accessible as the edge of farm fields is only around 3 kilometres as the crow flies from the peak.
- Getting there: Fly to Toli-Toli from Palu.
- Accommodation: A few hotels in Toli-Toli plus Pijar Beach near the airport.
- Permits: Unknown

- Travel insurance: We recommend World Nomads insurance, which is designed for adventurous travellers with cover for overseas medical, evacuation, baggage and a range of adventure sports and activities including mountain hiking.
