Hello to all travelers,
Please help to decide where to spend 11 days in Sumatra. We prefer not crowded, quiete places and ideally wanna combine mountains, jungle, waterfalls, treking and nice beach for rest and snorchling/diving at the end. Deciding between following options:
1) Easiest one - overland: After completing work in Bandar Lampung continue directly from there to Kota Agung to visit Bukit Barisan Selatan national park, then continue through Palau Sebesi and Krakatau to Java, Ujung Kulong NP there and after 11 days flying back home from Jakarta
2) Fly from BL to Jakarta and from there to Padang and do attractions around - Bukittingi, rafflesia, Lake Maninjau, Harau Valley... Any tip for nice budget island escape similar to overpriced Cubadak island pls? After 11 days fly back to Jakarta.
3) Fly from BL to Jakarta and from there to Medan and do attractions around - Berastagi, Gunung Leuseur NP, lake Toba... After 11 days fly back to Jakarta.
Thank you so much for all previous advices to Pamela, Laszlo and others! Just cannot decide where to concentrate to :-)
