Sultry Sumatra. Our first overseas trip for 2018

Mountain Experience, together with Venture Force, were joined by staff and students from Catmose College for a fantastic expedition to Sumatra in Indonesia.

Food for thought.

 

On our way to the waterfalls.

The students undertook educational visits to learn about the impact of palm oil on the rainforest and how that impinges on the wildlife living there. Having seen the impact, the students worked especially hard when replanting indigenous trees in an area that had been recovered from illegal palm oil plantations.

 

Orangutan usually stay up in the trees, but this BIG guy decided to come down and get a closer look at us!

The students undertook a mixture of education and adventure travel.

The elephants particularly like a good scrub with a hard brush!
