Gunung Bagging Trips – the basics:
What? Provisional list of hiking trips in Indonesia / Malaysia / Timor Leste over the next 12 months published below. Premium Subscribers are free to add their own using the form at the bottom of the page. This page is an overview – the full details/itineraries and estimated costs are to be requested directly from the trip leader. Occasionally this list also includes trips to other sites of interest such as megaliths and remote islands, especially during the rainy season when many mountains are closed.
When? Months are specified but dates in some cases are not yet confirmed until closer to the time by the trip leader, so that anyone interested in joining can get in touch and see if we can find the most convenient schedule to suit. This also protects privacy. The earlier you announce or join trips, the more chance there is of the trip happening. Flight costs are sometimes cheaper the more in advance you can book, and seats on weekend trains to/from Jakarta can sell out several weeks before the date. So it’s best to plan ahead as much as you can. We allow trip plans to be published up to 12 months (one year) in advance. Most of the Gunung Bagging-led trips start and end in Jakarta, but you are welcome to join nearer the mountain.
Who? These trips are open to all, but you need to be very fit, reasonably experienced and ideally have all the equipment you need (ask trip leader for details). The trips are led by Gunung Bagging or by Gunung Bagging Premium Subscribers, and are non-commercial (i.e not-for-profit) – see detailed notes below. Premium Subscribers are welcome to submit their own trip plans using the form below, but we will only change the date or details once or twice after it has been submitted initially (and this may take us some time if we are away on a trek ourselves).
Hikes in bold are Gunung Bagging-led hikes, usually with Dan.
Dates in italics are tentative and not yet confirmed.
Trips in RED are full and/or joining is no longer possible.
See the notes below for further information on the ‘code’ information.
***NO PLANNED TRIPS AT PRESENT***
There are no formally planned Gunung Bagging trips at present but hikes in Malaysia are likely subject to further relaxation of travel restrictions and sufficient funds to actually do them! There will probably be an annual Gunung Bagging expedition starting in the next year or two, most likely a lengthy trek of a week or so. For easier weekend trips in Indonesia, be sure to check the Java Lava calendar page.
IMPORTANT NOTE / DISCLAIMER: Whilst the vast majority of trips are great fun and no problems occur it is still vital to remember that all participants join at their own risk and should arrange their own travel insurance as appropriate. Gunung Bagging cannot be held responsible for any accidents or injury that could result from joining trips that are publicized on this page or the site in general, or for disagreements such as relating to non-refunded deposits. All agreements about the trips are held entirely between participants and the trip leader or contact listed. If you use Gunung Bagging to either join or publicize a trip then you agree to the above.
