No comfy accommodations here! You’ll be sleeping rough in tents under the forest canopy for three or more nights, and a night or two with a local family if you’re interested – expect a thin mat on the floor of a very basic room, and a cold bucket of cold water to bathe with (if you’re not bathing in the river with locals)! But you’ll be having an experience of a lifetime.
Also, as it is a rainforest, expect and prepare for rain at some point during your trek, no matter what season you’re travelling in.
Although you may choose to stay in a hotel, we encourage staying with a family from Lempur. This provides lots of opportunities to hang out with locals around the village, optionally visit a local school, participate in agricultural work or other village tasks, prep and cook traditional dishes, and learn about the history and culture of this unique community. It’s highly recommended.
Like all of our trips, you travel at your own risk. Keep in mind that you are visiting a wild and extremely remote area of rural Sumatra, far from quality medical care. It’s your responsibility to make sure you are covered with valid travel and medical insurance.
