Down The Singkil River

The Singkil River is the longest river flow in Aceh which is directly connected to the Aceh highlands, namely Southeast Aceh Regency.

Down the Singkil River with the aim of heading to the old settlement which is no longer inhabited due to land subsidence in the estuary area. There is no road to reach the location, the waterway by boat is the only available transportation. This activity aims for scientific studies.
