An adventure trips on the RIVER OF THE RED APE. Rafting on the Alas river from the village of Ketambe passing down Mt. Leuser National Park to the city of Gelombang, close to the Indian ocean. In the upper areas of the Alas several class III-IV rapids are demanding a good performance. The boat is passing pristine rainforest and many wildlife can be seen, especially monkeys and a big variety of beautiful rich coloured birds.

On rafting-trips longer we sleep in tents on the shore of Alas river.
