138 Spesial peaks on the islands of Java, Bali, Lombok, Bawean, Bangka, Belitung, Laut, Weh, Sumatra, Sulawesi, Manado Tua, Ruang, Tagulandang, Halmahera, Krakatau, Sebesi, Karimun, Panaitan, Borneo, Flores, Mules, Pura, Lembata, Pantar, Komodo, Rinca, Timor, Banda, Ambon, Buru, Damar, Paluwe, Manuk, Serua, Nila, Teun, Gunungapi Wetar, Waigeo, Una-una, Atauro, Langkawi, Penang and the Malay Peninsula (Eurasia). These peaks do not have 1,000 metres prominence. Whereas the Ribu list is based on objective prominence-based criteria, the list of Spesial peaks is very much a subjective and growing one and we therefore welcome suggestions for additions to it. If you know a good peak which is missing then please do get in touch and we will consider making an addition. There are several criteria for appearing on this list – all peaks will meet one or more of the following criteria:
  • Interest – the mountain or volcano is of significant interest (geological, historical, etc.) and regarded as definitely being worth visiting. It may be a popular hike or indeed relatively unknown. Anak Krakatau and Banda Api are examples.
  • “Almost a Ribu” – the mountain or volcano comes ever so close to reaching the required 1,000 metres prominence for Ribu status. Halimun (938m prominence) is an example.
  • “Previously a Ribu” – the mountain or volcano was previously in the list of Ribus but now no longer qualifies. This may be due to new topographical information of greater accuracy or perhaps even due to a major eruption which alters the shape and stature of the peak.
