Mount Tambora, the highest peak on the island of Sumbawa, is one of the most beautiful mountains in Indonesia.

That event is the largest eruption in recorded history and it left behind a crater 6 km in diameter. The Mount Tambora trail will take you deep into the heart of Sumbawa, one of Indonesia’s least visited islands, with breathtaking experiences for the adventurous trekker.Enjoy a five day excursion with fully supported camping, as you trek through lush jungle landscapes on your ascent to Mount Tambora, and witness spectacular views of the enormous crater from the top of mountain.
