Every now and then, I always try to go out of my way and get to places that is not mentioned in a blog or guide books and for Timor Leste, there is plenty of off-the-beaten-path to be found and so I decided to hop on a truck with a bunch of locals heading towards the mountains of Timor Leste. Boy was it worth it as the weather becomes cooler, places become wilder and less touristic, and best of all, I found solitude in Maubisse.
I had the whole bungalow to myself with the view of the mountains of the Maubisse. I spend 2 days walking around the market, mingling with the locals, enjoying the views of the mountains from the Pousada de Maubisse, reading books from a quiet balcony. I could not have asked for a better place to end my trip in Timor Leste. What a wonderful place to visit!
