  • Description


    Hello workawayers!!

    I live in the picturesque, kerinci secret valley with my family .

    we just started the eco project.
    currently preparing to build a tree house and hut, using bamboo rattan wood clay and other natural materials.

    The others project is turning my home into a hostel/ home stay.
    I have been building this place with volunteers for about a year now and I love all the different creative input I have got from my volunteers.

    It's important to me that you enjoy my place! When we get spare time I can show some of Kerinci's beauty. It has a lot to offer! From waterfalls, to lakes , historic caves, local markets, cinnamon coffee tea plantations ( the largest tea and cinnamon burmanii plantation in the world ) and so much more.
    Lots of places here are still completely untouched. Come and see for yourself.
