About Mount Ramelau/Foho Ramelau

This website is named after Mount Ramelau, the highest mountain in East Timor at 2963 metres. The mountain is located approximately 80km south of the capital Dili and in the district of Ainaro. Foho Ramelau/Mount Ramelau was used as a political anthem of the Revolutionary Front of Independent East Timor (FRETILIN) in 1975. At that time I was only 14 years old and I could hear Fretilin supporters sing Foho Ramelau when they visited districts and villages.
