A Slice of Paradise, the Harau Valley – Sumatra, Indonesia
Want to get off the beaten track and away from it all, relax, take a break from lugging that backpack around for a while? I’ll let you into a little secret – make your way to the Harau Valley. Lodgings consist of small huts in the middle of lush tropical foilage overlooked by sheer towering faces of multi-coloured rock. Acres of flourescent green paddyfields add to the visual effect and the river that runs through the valley is complete with sun dappled bathing pools and refreshing cascades that throw gushing, gurgling and tinkling sound effects into the still air. We stayed 3 days and didn’t see another tourist! It was a slice of paradise.
