May – July 2010 I am from the Blue Mountains (near Sydney), New South Wales Australia. A friend and I have been living in Hato Builico East Timor for 3 months working with the community developing walking tourism. We are both self funded volunteers with no financial interest in the project.
Most tourists who come to Hato Builico stay for one night, climb Mt Ramelau (East Timor’s highest mountain at about 3,000 metres) and then leave. Our aim is to show that there is far more to do and see in this area than Mt Ramelau.
March 2011 We are now back in Australia and have just finished a guide book of walks in the area. If you would like a copy please download from the “Walks” page.
