Day 1 – Up into the Clouds
Leave your lodging in the morning to begin your climb with a guide & porter. On the way to the trail head, don’t forget to turn around and see the incredible view of the beautiful Kayu Aro tea plantation, rice fields, the Rawa Bento wetlands, and Mt. Tujuh off in the distance. Once in the forest, be on the lookout for Yellow-handed Mitered Langurs (our endemic, orange leaf monkeys), lizards, and birds. You’ll hear the enchanting song of Siamang gibbons, and if you’re really lucky, you might even spot a family of them. After about 8 hours of hiking you will make camp.
Day 2 – On Top of the World
Before the sun rises, scramble an additional two hours up the scree and rubble until you reach the crater. Bask in the views. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to see lava bubbling far below in the bottom of the crater, and on a clear day you can see all the way to the Indian ocean to your west. Congratulations, you’re now the tallest person on Sumatra! After a little while, carefully make your way back down the mountain, making your way out of the jungle after about six hours.
Optional Day 3
To savor the hike (and make it a little easier), spend an extra night on the slopes of the volcano either going up or coming down. Slow and steady wins the race (and usually results in more wildlife spotting).
