5 Days Padang Harau Valley Wonders Trekking – The Harau Valley is sometimes known as the Yosemite of Indonesia. Here, gibbons and macaques and a variety of wildlife still roam freely as this area in the Lima Puluh Kota district has actually been designated nature conservation, covering some 669 acres.
Its beautiful landscape, its peaceful serenity interrupted only by the calls of the macaques and the chirping of birds, make the Harau Valley the perfect holiday getaway.
The steep rock walls here are not only a natural invitation to photographers, but they also attract rock climbers who consider climbing these steep walls a significant challenge.

Relaxing is one of the best time-elapsing activities here. Order a cup of coffee and local delicacies and settle down to write the last chapter of your travels and the extraordinary experiences you had in wonderful Indonesia.
