Wherever you go on the island, Mt Gamalama is almost always in your sight. The island is formed by this volcano

A beautifull climp. Started about 10 back at 17.00. You need a good condition. Path is rather difficult. Much clay. Please take sticks with you and a lot of water. When it is wet or raining waite then for another dry day. I slept in B&B Kurnia homestay Ternate. Good adress. She can help you to find guides. My guides were IBNU 0812-4249-9387 en Ryan 0821-5418-7013. Good guys. Check If the have food with them and water otherwise you have to feed them.

climbed up to the mount accompagnied by two local guides - I do not recommand to go alone without help of a local, but you should a) make sure the guide knows what he's doing, b) negotiate a reasonable price (I payed around 35 EUR for both incl. food). You should leave quite early and hopefully you are lucky and have a sunny day, although the weather may change rapidly too. The visit takes you the whole day and you should be prepared that there is not a good path way - it's all nature, there are no handrails, no steps, only a narrow path that is very steep. The first part is crossing plantation forest with clove, nutmeg, mangosteen trees etc., more uphill there is jungle. You should wear proper hiking shoes (although some local climb up in flip flops ;-) There are different paths to reach the summit, divided by kind of "camps" - places to rest (do enough rests). You should be in good shape cause it is really exhausting to go up. Take enough drinking water and some food with you.
Some parts of the path require certain climbing skills, you should be careful cause it's slippery. Arrived in top you have either have a brilliant view on the surrounding or your in the clouds, you can walk around watching some small and big craters. Going down is faster but plan enough time to arrive in the lower parts of plantation forest before it is dark.
