I'm putting together an itinerary for a 3 week trip around Sumatra starting in a few weeks. I'm not expecting to cover the entire island so really just want to see the highlights at a slowish pace before I head down to Jakarta.
Here's what I thinking. I've estimated how long I think I will want to stay in each place but I'm likely to change this once I get there.
Fly in to Medan 2-3 days
Fly/overnight bus to Banda Aceh 2-3 days
Pulau Weh for diving 3 days
Back to Medan (bus or flight)
Bus to Berastagi 2-3 days (volcano climb?)
Bus to Lake Toba 3-4 days
Bus to Bukittinggi
Bus to Padang
Mentawi Islands (surfing?)
Back to Padang and fly to Jakarta
I've done a lot of jungle trekking and looking for orang utans over the last few months which is why I've left these out. I've not looked into how to get from place to place yet so I'm not sure if this is the best order in which to see things.
Any help would be appreciated.
