Sumatra

Planning to spend 10-14 days in Sumatra in January 2013. Interested in rainforest, orangutan, culture, ethnic groups, snorkeling.

Budget: 100-150 $ per day. Travel with my wife. We love the outdoors. Any kayak outfits that rent kayaks or organize kayak trips?

Hi Moisher,

Why have you put this post in the West Sumatra forum?

It should be in the North Sumatra forum.

If you have 10-14 days you could fly into Banda Aceh and spend some time on Pulau Weh and then travel overland down through Aceh to Ketambe where you can see wild orangutans.

And I think they possibly do a bit of kayaking on the river in Ketambe.

OR fly from Banda Aceh after Pulau Weh into Medan and do a tour of Bukit Lawang for rehabilitated orangutans, Tangkahan for elephants and jungle paradise, Lake Toba and possibly Brestagi.

Are you planning on doing this trip yourselves or are you interested in an English speaking driver with excellent air con car to take you around Medan, Bukit Lawang, Tangkahan, Brestagi and Lake Toba.

If you would like some scanned maps of the area feel free to email me at

pamela_fuge@yahoo.com.au and I can forward them to you.

I have spent considerable time in these areas over the years.

Pamela.
