Trekking the Maninjau Basin

Basin Rice Paddies, Lake Maninjau, Sumatra, Indonesia.

Trekking through a swampy, boggy rice paddy in a driving rain isn't the ideal vision of holiday most people might have, but for me it's a perfect slice of paradise. Lake Maninjau sees a fair number of visitors, but few venture far from the lake - which is a shame, as the Maninjau Basin is filled with striking natural beauty.
