Sumatra is an intrepid traveller’s paradise with steaming volcanoes, lush rainforests supporting healthy Orangutan populations, highland lakes, dramatic waterfalls and locals with distinctive cultures. This tour starts with a stopover in Kuala Lumpur before heading to the highlands of west Sumatra which have provided a safe haven for the local Minangkabau culture to thrive over the centuries. Continue to the Gunung Leuser National Park for elephant trekking in the remote jungle village of Tangkahan, and then hiking in the rainforest to search for wild oragutans at Bukit Lawang. After spending some time at the hill station of Berastagi to see the active volcanos of Sinabak & Sinabung, the trip finishes with a relaxing 3 night stay on Lake Toba’s Samosir Island, home to the Batak people.
