The most suitable time for trekking in Timor is during the dry
season, which starts in March and runs through until November.
As a visitor trekking in Timor, whether you are in the Matebean
or Ramelau mountains, Oecussi enclave or on Atauro Island you will
need to hire a guide and buy accommodation and food. This greatly
assists in rebuilding the local economy.
A local guide knows the language, terrain and hazards, and are
likely to share some of their culture and local stories with you.
Most importantly, if you get into trouble, your guide will be able
to call for help quickly.
