D1

Arrive in Padang, Sumatra

Arrive in to Padang on a Friday and transfer to your hotel

Other days will mean extra nights in Padang or paying more for a chartered fast boat to the Mentawai Islands.

Dinner and overnight in the hotel – enjoy – it will be your last night of luxury, shower and a toilet!

D2

The Adventure Begins

After an early breakfast, begin the journey to Muara Siberut island, one of the major Mentawai Islands. After arranging your permit to stay in a tribal village, continue the journey by motorised canoe to a secluded area known at Rorogot. From here it’s a 2 1/2 hour jungle trek to Bat Osap Village where you’ll be staying.

Your lodging is in a traditional uma, or traditional Mentawai home. Conditionas are very basic with no AC, showers or toilet! You’ll learn about the Mentawi worldview and belief systems during your stay.

A home cooked dinner is provided by your host family.

D3

Living the Tribal Life

You’ll be truly immersed in their culture over the next few days living and working with your tribal family. The way of doing things hasn’t changed much over the centuries.

Trek deep into the virgin forest hunting with bows and poisoned arrows, go fishing with spears, learn how to make a loincloth from tree bark and wear it if you’re brave enough!

D4

Living the Tribal Life 2

Continue your experience with the tribe.

D5

Sampai Jumpa...

After what will probably be a bitter-sweet farewell as you will have grown attached to your new family but looking forward to things like a hot shower, flushing toilet and soft mattress, trek the 2 hours back through the jungle to your motorised canoe to take you to Muara Siberut to board your fast boat to Padang.

Overnight in Padang.

D6

Farewell Sumatra

Depending on your flight schedule the day is free at leisure until your departing flight.
