Community-based Ecotourism in Indonesia
Ready for a truly off the beaten path Indonesia adventure? Hike deep into the jungle searching for wildlife. Climb a steaming volcano or two. Trek through lush cinnamon forests and verdant green rice paddies. All while directly supporting conservation and communities in the idyllic wilds of Sumatra. Come explore the Kerinci and Bengkulu regions, and the incredible Kerinci Seblat National Park.
Since 2010, the Wild Sumatra network has been helping responsible travelers discover the most remote wild places left on the mysterious, mountainous, rainforest-shrouded island of Sumatra. We work with rural communities to empower local guides, helping them promote their services and connecting them with off-the-beaten-track backpackers and adventurers. Our tours are focused on authentic, sustainable, small-group trekking and cultural experiences in Indonesia’s rainforests and their surrounding villages.
We believe strongly that community-based ecotourism can support conservation and help safeguard the still-untouched forests and wildlife of Sumatra, while helping to improve the quality of life for people living on the forest’s edge. Come explore with us, and help make the world a better place.
