Trekking in North Sumatra, Indonesia - any advice?

Hello - I am looking for advice on trekking in Indonesia - Sumatra in particular. Interested in seeing Orangutans and other local wildlife. Can anyone suggest a good tour operator, and also suggest the best time to do this - was thinking April. Anyone been on a similar trip who can give some advice? Thanks, M.

  • Hi Mathieu,

    Weather-wise, you should be fine to explore Sumatra in April, as it is the dry season for that region, but note that much of Indonesia experiences monsoon rains between October and April which could make travelling more complicated.
