Off the Radar

Executive summary by Darmansjah

OFFICIALLY  split from Indonesia in 2002, Timor-Leste (East Timor) is one of the world’s newest, and least touristed, countries. Visit this topographical and cultural wonderland with one of the few Western companies guiding trips there. Climb the 9,721-foot Mount Ramelau to take in the sunrise, hike through old-growth tropical forests looking for prehistoric rock paintings, and share ikan sabuko (fish cooked in banana leaves) with the villagers of Loi Huno. Mountain Travel Sobek: “Journey of Discovery in Timor-Leste,” 12 days; $3,495
