Southeast Aceh

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Going from Takengon to the southeast over a distance of 165 kilometers past the villages Isese and Rikit Gaib, the traveler arrives at Slang Kejeren. This is the upstream region of the Alas River, inside the Gunung Leuser Na donal Park, the largest in Indonesia.

The wealth of the park’s flora and fauna make it a frequent site for research on primates, birds, insects and for environmental studies. Basic lodging facilities are available at the Ketambe post. Another way to reach this na¬tional park is through Kutacane, the capital of the Southeast Aceh regency.
Lawe Gurab Park is 9,200 hectares large and is only 35 kilometers from Kutacane. About 40 kilometers from Kutacane-Blang Ke¬jeren is a hot water spring set in impressively scenic surroundings.

Along the road between Kutacane and Blang Kejeren, the Alas Rivercuts through the Gunung Leuser National Park as it rushes downstream. The area is especially popular among the young and adventurous. The sharp bends and the many rapids make the river in this area highly challenging to white-water rafters.

South of Kutacane is the border between the provinces Aceh and North Sumatr:l. This area is known as the Karo region. Here, Chris¬tian churches begin to make their appearance, and there are quite a number of them.
