Most people associate a trip to Indonesia with beaches, reefs and island hopping. This archipelago also offers world class trekking. Setting off on foot for adventure and exploration in Indonesia offers limitless opportunities. Whether that be a moderate day walk through a pretty valley lined with traditional villages, a clamber up a volcanic peak with jaw-dropping dawn views, a wildlife watching bonanza while hiking through remote jungle or a real life adventure about which you could write a book, Indonesia is a place to lace up your hiking boots and leave civilisation behind … literally you won’t get any signal from your telco provider. Indonesia’s warm climate, myriad islands and unique cultures, not to mention its geographical spread, make it a country that can take a lifetime to fully explore. The Mark Twain’s quote “dream, explore, discover” is truly for Indonesia.
