    Descripción

    My name is Dedi, and I am the leader of the Kerinci Branch of the Association Guide Indonesia. I am passionate about promoting the Kerinci Valley to tourists. We have so many amazing attractions but not many people know about them.
    I studied Tourism and worked in Bali, and have traveled and worked in Jakarta and Mentawai islands.
    I learnt English over the years working in tourism but always love to practise and improve. I decided to come back to my home town to promote what I believe is one of the most untouched and beautiful parts of Indonesia. I also have a business organising decorations and costumes for local weddings. (Which helps me support my family). I have a wife and a baby. We live in my wife’s family home in Siulak Panjang. There is also the possibility to stay at my sister's house, which is more in the mountain area - cooler and totally relaxing!

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We welcome our volunteers as family members and are happy to share our daily lives with you. I can show you around and teach you about the wonderful attractions in the Kerinci Valley, including the largest volcano in Indonesia, waterfalls hot springs, amazing wildlife, including the largest population of wild Sumatran tigers (very shy and often hard to find though) in the world, and cinnamon and tea processing. I love talking about the local culture, customs and festivals. We can also teach you how to cook traditional food if you like, just ask!

    There are always lots of different things happening here, so we can talk about what you are interested in and what I need help with when you are here.

    My top priority for volunteers is to help me set up a crowdfunding camapaign, because i want to start a new hostel. We already have a beautiful land and good ideas for the consrtruction, but to start we need financial support, as it is hard to find an investor around here. we are looking for someone who has experience with crowdfunding, video editing or knowledge to build up a hostel/guesthouse.

    To make Kerinci more tourist ready, Kerinci locals need to practise their English. We don’t run set classes but you may be able to visit schools, and have conversations, teach and play with the local children.

    If you are keen to learn about Sumatran weddings, you can help set up and decorate when I have a job.

    If you like gardening, there is usually something to do in our large vegetable patch.

    My mother-in-law’s home is located in the heart of Siulak Panjang. It is a little town and half an hour away from the largest town in the Kerinci valley, Sungai Penuh. My wife, my baby and I live here with my parents-in-law. you will have your own room with double bed. you can experience traditional kerinci family-life and be part of it.

    We are happy to provide you with traditional meals (rice, fish and vegetables). You can contribute by buying some food. If you like to cook you are welcome to make some meals.

    How can you get here? (I can help with any shared cars from Jambi, Padang or Kerinci Airports)
    1. Fly into Padang (Minangkabau International Airport) from Jakarta or KL ($50-$60 AUD), get a shared car (100-130,000Rp) or private car (1,000,000Rp) to Kerinci Valley (7-8 hours).
    2. Fly to Kerinci Airport (KRC) from Jambi Airport (DJB) ($40-$60AUD), then a bus to Sungai Penuh takes 45 mins (15,000 Rp). From Sungai Penuh to Tanjung Bungo is 1 hour (15,000 Rp)
    3. Fly to Jambi Airport (DJB), then get a shared car (100-130,000Rp) or private car(1,000,000Rp) to Kerinci Valley (9 hours)

    The Kerinci Valley has so many opportunities to see natural wonders, wildlife and our unique culture. I live near the largest tea plantation in the world. When you step outside in the morning in Tanjung Bungo you will see Gunung Kerinci, Indonesia’s highest volcano. You can also visit caves, waterfalls, hot springs and tea/cinnamon processing. Lake Kaco has five lakes that are all different colours. The Kerinci Valley is home to gibbons, monkeys, birds and the giant corpse flower. There are over 160 tigers in Kerinci Seblat National Park but they are shy and the park is large so you probably won’t meet them, even if you go trekking. I can take you to some sites close by or help you organise a tour if you want to go further or climb a mountain.
