The highlands of Sumatra

Eric Jones

From Padang we went inland towards Padang-Pajang on motorbikes to explore the Sumatran highland. From there we continued up to the lake Maninjau and went along the coast back to Padang.

The lake was situated in a crater and in the background the mountains circling the lake can be seen.
