Gunung Merah means Red Mountain in Malay and Indonesian.

It is one of the highest points in Panau, after the Snow Peak and some other peaks in the Berawan Besar Mountains. The peak is about 1489 meters high (confirmed by Parachute climbing). It overlooks the majority of the Lautan Lama Desert.

There's multiple settlements on the same mountain, but the highest and closest to the tip are Kampung Ekor Bengkok and Kem Jalan Merpati.

The south side is very steep and if you are skilled, you could be BASE jumping down the cliffs and slopes all the way down to the beach. Skilled jumpers prefer this type of challenges over the Mile High Club.

The mountain can be climbed without using Rico's grapple hook.
