Hike to five unique lakes in the southern reaches of Kerinci, closest to the village of Lempur. On your Sumatra jungle trek, you’ll experience wildlife and culture up close as you pass through ricefields and traditionally managed customary forests (hutan adat) of cinnamon, bamboo, and other forest crops, walk along (and through) small rivers and wetlands, swim in and paddle bamboo rafts on remote highland lakes, and explore pristine primary rainforest. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot Siamang gibbons, leaf monkeys, hornbills, and a variety of bird and other animal life. A few of our guests have even been lucky enough to see Sun Bears and Sumatran Tigers! While the itinerary below is for four days/three nights, we also have 3D/2N or 5D/4N options as well.
Difficulty: Moderate. While the landscape isn’t too steep at any points, endurance is necessary for a four day trek.
