Welcome to Western Timor-Leste
Western Timor-Leste encompasses everything from bare, winding passes through the interior, and its coffee-bean shading rainforest, to the coast-hugging road that leads to the Indonesian border. Inland from Dili is excellent coffee-country: Aileu is a good place to stop and eat before you hit the misty mountain town of Maubisse. Come for a weekend, hopefully spending one of the morning's climbing Timor-Leste's highest mountain, Mt Ramelau. The coast road leads you past the resort town of Liquiçá. Back up into the hills is Balibó and Timor-Leste's great hot springs.
