Sumatra is the largest of Indonesia’s 17,508 islands and it was the first island that I would visit during the trip in November 2018.
The island has several active volcanos and was once populated by dense rainforests.
The areas that were once dense rain forests are now populated with deforested fields and palm oil plantations. The road to Gunung Leuser seems like a never ending stretch up money driven devastation.
The remaining rainforests are populated with a diverse variety of wildlife and friendly locals.
