Ketambe is a small, quiet and remote city in the most south of Aceh. In the 1970's the Indonesian government tried to increase its influence in the region by building a hotel facility and making it, besides Bukit Lawang, an official entrance to the Gunung Leuser National Park to see wild Orang Utans, black and white-handed Gibbons, Hornbills etc. Ketambe is besides this a small but charming village, worth a visit to both go trekking and to just relax for a day or two, since not many tourists take the long but beautiful way to Ketambe.

Notice that Ketambe is located in Aceh which is partly governed by muslim sharia laws. Show respect for that by for example not using drugs (acctually drugs are not prohibited in Holy Quran only alcohol is) or alcohol in public. No special dresscode for women (except not wearing very short shorts and tops out of respect) required, most local women do not wear a hijab during daily work neither.
