Sumatra by review :
Pulau Weh ( Weh Island ) - at the northwestern end of Sumatra
- is a beautiful island of dense jungle, high hill-top views, palm-lined
beaches and mysterious rocky coves. There is also a fresh water lake and
a semi-active vulcano on the island. Nearby Rubiah island is famous for
its excellent coral reefs and spectacular array of tropical fish. A great
place for snorkeling and diving. There are several licensed diving schools
on the island.
Gunung Leuser National Park
This is one of the largest national parks in the world, containing
over 800.000 ha. of virgin rainforest. The park is home to the Orang Utan,
gibbons, tigers, elephants and among the last of the Sumatran rhino. There
are research facilities for the study of primates, birds and insects.
It is possible to raft down the Sungai Alas river from Ketambe to the
Indian Ocean on a 4-5 day expedition. Your journey takes you through exciting
white-water rapids to the calmer, crocodile-infested waters of the low-lands.
The Orang Utan Rehabilitation Center where formerly captive apes
are re-introduced into the wild. One of the most popular tourist destinations
One of the largest and deepest lakes in Southeast Asia . In the
middle Samosir island. Toba has developed into a full-featured highland
resort while retaining the rustic charm and relaxed ambiance that define
The heart of the highlands, Bukittinggi is a pleasant two-hour
drive from the West-Sumatra provincial capital of Padang through the gorgeous
Anai Valley up to the Agam Plateau. Located 930 meter above sea level,
Bukittinggi (formerly called Fort De Kock by the Dutch)
has a cool climate and is surrouned by three vulcanoes: Tandikat, Singgalang
and Merapi. The central landmark is the town's clock tower, referred to
by the locals as Jam Gadang. It's overlooks the market square, a beehive
of activity. A fantastic place to do shopping in souvenir shops. Nearby
Kota Gadang is renowned for its fine silver filigree and hand embroidery.
On the outskirts of Bukittinggi there is a 150 meter deep canyon called
Ngarai Sianok ( Sianok Canyon ).It is an incredibly
winding through the bottom of the steep-walled canyon. West Sumatrans
claim it is unrivalled for natural beauty in all of Indonesia .
A crater lake, its scenery rivals Lake Toba on a smaller scale.
One of West Sumatra 's most famous sights. There are facilities for swimming,
water skiing and a good selection of hotels and restaurants. The village
of Matur , overlooking the lake, arranges dance performances on request.
Another ideal place for recreation - 36 km from Bukittinggi - is Lake
Singkarak, the longest in West Sumatra .
Kerinci-Seblat National Park
Home to rhino's, tigers, elephants, bears and orang-utans, the
Kerinci sprawls across four provinces, making it Sumatra 's largest national
park. The scenery is magnificent, dominated by volcanic cones including
the highest peak in Western Indonesia Mount Kerici. Lake
Kerinci is the best place to sight the park's famous bird life.
