Trekking Mt Ramelau

Tatamailau, once in a while alluded as Mount Ramelau, is the most elevated mountain in East Timor with 2,986 m (9,797 ft). The mountain is placed nearly 70 km (43 mi) of the capital Dili in the area of Ainaro.
In Portuguese pilgrim days it was the most elevated heap of the entire Portuguese provincial realm. The name “Tatamailau” is Mambai-origin, the nearby dialect and means “Grandfather of all”. “Ramelau” is the name of the massif of the mountain.
The Tatamailau is devoted to the Virgin Mary and the subject of a yearly journey celebrating the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, around March 25. There is a three meter high statue of the Virgin Mary on the top.
