Adventure in Indonesia: which Island?

Hello everybody

 

 

 

My name is Zeno, I'm a 19 years old guy from Italy.

 

 

 

My plan is to spend one month from mid June to mid July ind Indonesia, all by myself. It is the first time I'm visitng Indonesia, so I don't really know where to start.

 

 

 

I can consider myself as quite rugged, it's going to be a bapacking trip and I want to truly live the Indonesian nature and life, without the help of any guide (if I can..). I want to explore it by myself! Sleeping on the beach on a hammock or up on some mountain wouldn't be a big deal, I love being surrounded by untouched nature and nothing else.

 

 

 

I am looking for a place with not many tourists, but where I may find some friendly Adventurer like me and team up for some while. But this isn't the biggest deal: I love being by myself.

 

 

 

I love hiking, and along with scuba diving and photography, I'd like it to be one of my main occupations in Indonesia. Where should I head for the best hiking trails? I think I will move around by public transportation, even if I might consider renting a motorbike (I'm working on my driving licence.. but I'll have it by this summer!).

 

 

 

So, this is an approximate description of my trip-style. The big question is: where should I head? In my mind I was thinking of Sulawesi, starting from the North (beautiful parks and diving sites), and gradually go south, following the heart and the local suggestions. I'd love to visit Togean Islands too!

 

 

 

Would you guys agree with me? I was also considering Flores, Java and Sumatra, but I haven't really studied them (I was more focused on Sulawesi, but now I'm thinking that it's plenty of wondeful places in Indonesia, which I just don't know!), so I'm very open to experienced suggestions. Also, I could start one one Island and thenfly off to another one, it depends on hoe much each island has to offer.

 

 

 

Thanks for your time,

 

 

 

all the best

Hi

Good to see that someone is willing to spend amidst nature and not worried about accomodations, travel etc. I have been to Indonesia but mainly towards the eastern side since it attracts less travellers. Alor, Derawan are places that you should absolutely visit. My advice would be to explore the eastern part of Indonesia first and then decide upon which way to go. For your reference I am also attaching two links:

Indonesia has enough thrilling adventures to keep any adrenaline junkie busy. Indonesia is one of the places of the world that can be called a yachters heaven. Indonesia has many exotic places like Bali, Jakarta and many more. The main attraction, however, lies in the cruises.  Law Essay Writing Service UK
