Danau Ranau

My breakfast of coffee and wafer biscuits at the lake.

May 23

This is a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains in the southwest of Sumatra. Very remote, there were no other tourists here and only one hotel. According to lonely planet: ‘Remote Danau Ranau, nestled in the middle of the southwestern Bukit Barisan range, is one of the least accessible and least developed of Sumatra’s mountain lakes.’ It was great, one of the highlights of m trip so far. I took an ojek to the village of Liwa and the journey took me around the lake, with more stunning views.
