Maubisse – A laid-back hill station in the heart of East Timor

With mountains to climb and reefs at doorsteps, East Timor, the world’s 4th newest country located on a far east island of the Maritime Southeast Asia, is a winner. Dili, its capital city, is an ideal gateway to the wild: to untouched wonders and exotic tribal cultures. Maubisse, is a Portuguese hill station and is a famous destination for a summer heat escape from Dili. A trip to the valley requires up to 6 hours on a gravel road, passing through beautiful mountain landscapes and villages of Aileu district which lies between Dili and Ainaro.
