Trip Info

Explore the jungle into the heart of the Siberut Island in the western part off West Sumatra’s coast, to meet the indigenous people of the Mentawai who live close to nature and still live in comparative isolation, maintaining their age-old ways.

Mentawai culture is very typical, where the community has a unique tradition. Cultural tourism that can be enjoyed is the daily life of the Mentawai people in their traditional homes. Community activities such as; menyagu, hunting, making poison arrows, getting a tattoo, a pickpocket (traditional trousers), cooking sago, ceremonies with dances typical of the Mentawai (turuk), and ritual treatment by Sikerei (Mentawai shaman) has a high value of culture and tourism..
