There is a small antenna compound at the summit of Moncong Lompobatang, along with a triangular pillar and a boulder with the names previous climbers written on it. One kilometre north of the summit lies a slightly lower sub-peak known as Puncak Kohbang / Ko’bang (2,870 m) which is the alleged site of the tomb of a King of Gowa. The two peaks, including the entire mountain and its surrounding area, are considered spiritually significant among local people.
