WELCOME TO LOSMEN TINTIN BUNGUS BEACH WEST SUMATRA INDONESIA

Day 1               Arriving in Padang, you will meet your local treking crew who will inform you of the current island conditions. The Mentawai Islands are in Indian Ocean, approximately 100 km to the west of Padang. Now the island is also a paradise for surfers. Your journey begins with an evening crossing to Siberut Island vernight on the ferry.

Day 2 – 6         Siberut Trek We will arrive in the early hours of the morning at Siberut port, from here we commence our trek into the islands interior. A moderate level of fitness is required as the trekking can be demanding, balancing on slippery logs along muddy tracks in the tropical humidity. We will however be rewarded with stunning views and beautiful jungles abounding with unique plant and wildlife. The real highlight of your journey though, is the chance to meet the people of Siberut, traditionally hunter, gatherer clans who are now coming into contact with the modern world. We will stay at long house of a Sikerei (medicine –man) in the Uma (traditional family house). Here, where conditions are basic, we will gain a unique insight into the lives of these people who maintain a belief system based on living in total harmony with nature.

 

Day 7 – 8         Masilok Beach. Trekking to the south of the island we will discover idyllic unspoiled white sandy beaches: perfect for swimming, snorkeling and beach combing. Today we will stay at a local simple guest house at Masilok Beach.

 

Day 9               Back to Muara Siberut. After breakfast we will take a motorized canoe back to Muara Siberut. And late evening we crossing back the ocean to Padang. Overnight on the ferry.

 

Day 10             End of the tour, early morning we will arrive at Muara Padang Free for your own before transfer to airport for your next destination. 

 

Note: Departure to Siberut every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and back to Padang every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Ferry schedule sometime can be changed without prior notice depend on weather. This is a challenging trek that will take you far from the tourist trail, into the heart of the Mentawai Islands. Deep within their jungles indigenous people live close to nature. A people in transition, these uncomplicated rainforest dwellers are struggling to maintain their traditional lifestyle against the paradoxes of modernization. This trek is only recommended if you are prepared to accept very basic and often uncomfortable conditions.
