The Nature of Sulawesi: Guided Tour 3-20 August 2013

17 September 2013

During our epic 3-week traverse of Sulawesi and Halmahera the group bravely faced bloodsucking leeches, overgrown trails, and several flooded rivers, but were well rewarded with some incredible sightings of rare flora & fauna. Some highlights of the trip included: close encounters with tarsiers and macaques in Tangkoko, a very rare sighting of a Lowland Anoa, and reaching the summit ridge of Gunung Lumut after several days of hiking to find the remarkable pitcher plant Nepenthes hamata.
