Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam

Aceh is the northernmost province in Sumatra island. The provincial capital is Banda Aceh and there are flights to Sultan Iskandarmuda airport from several Indonesian and Malaysian cities. Aceh is home to the immense Gunung Leuser National Park and a large proportion of the remaining Sumatran tiger population lives within the province. Sadly, Sharia law is enforced in the province and one has to wonder if spending money through tourism should actually be encouraged.

Seulawah Agam is the most accessible Ribu in the province, but the excellent Bur ni Telong (which is a lower but interesting neighbour of the parent peak Bur ni Geureudong) is climbed most nights of the week by local hikers. Bur ni Kelieten is slowly growing in popularity and offers great views from near the summit. Many of the other peaks require lengthy, arduous week-long jungle expeditions, the most famous of which is Leuser itself which requires about two weeks.
