… the largest wilderness area in South-East Asia and an UNESCO world heritage area since 2004. It is further part of the tropical rain forest heritage of Sumatra, allowing for spectacular experiences in this fortunately still widely untouched nature.
The hike itself is a unique experience for several reasons:
No trails are available and one totally has to rely on the guide to find the way through the jungle (mainly following former rebel trails).
4-6 porters accompany you and provide you with the most delicious hiking food you’ll ever get to taste (don’t forget to tip).
You will not see ANYONE other than your party during the whole hike.
The wilderness of the jungle and its inhabitants is just breathtaking.
The river crossings are an adventure itself.
