After breakfast at your guesthouse in Lempur, take a short ride to the trailhead to begin your Sumatra jungle trek. The first part of the trek takes you through a hutan adat, a traditionally managed forest buffer zone where forest products like cinnamon, bamboo, ratan, fruits, and more are sustainably harvested by the village. Eventually, you’ll reach the boundaries of the Kerinci Seblat National Park, crossing over the shallow Manjuto river into primary rainforest.
If you started the trek late, make camp there, or continue up Bukit Lintang to the hill campsite. Bukit Lintang is known for having very healthy wildlife populations, so be on the lookout for wildlife as diverse as wild boar to Malayan tapir, sambar deer to Sumatran tigers.
