Gunung Dukono

North Maluku

Despite being an active volcano that continues to belch ash and smoke, it's possible to climb the almost 1400m-high Dukono in six sweaty hours if you are fit. If you don't want to hike back the same day, you could camp out overnight. The tourist office in Tobelo can arrange a guide and transport for 1,500,000Rp.
