Most spectacular spots of Northern Sumatra & Aceh
The highlights of Sumatra explored responsibly with our EcoTravel team! We’ve put together carefully selected sustainable day trips to the most spectacular spots of Northern Sumatra and Aceh. We would be delighted to guide you on our Sumatran orangutan trekking trips in Gunung Leuser National Park and our eco-friendly tours around Bukit Lawang. The popular jungle tours with our EcoTravel team may be the highlight of your Sumatra holiday – but there’s more to discover on this big Indonesian island: visit the famous Sumatran elephants in Tangkahan, hike up to Sibayak volcano in Berastagi for sunrise and experience the traditional Batak culture in the Karo Highlands and at Lake Toba – or just relax on a secluded beach on the beautiful island of Pulau Weh. Please see below for an overview of EcoTravel’s choice of the most important Sumatra destinations.
The island Pulau Weh offers some of the finest diving and snorkelling in the Indian Ocean. Yet this island is still very much undeveloped and untouched.
Tangkahan well-known as the hidden paradise of Gunung Leuser National Park. This peaceful jungle retreat is home of the famous Sumatran elephants.
Bukit Lawang, Berastagi and the Lake Toba - this journey covers all the major highlights of Sumatra including volcanos and great mountain views.
