As I told you before that last week I traveled to Lampung a province part of Indonesia located at the extreme of south of Sumatera. Boasts volcanoes, wildlife reserve, megalithic remain and a superb coastline of deep cut bays and wonderful beaches. Its capital is Bandar Lampung, is made up of twin cities that is Teluk Betung and Tanjung Karang.
Way Kambas Nature Reserve is a 130,000 ha area of swamp and lowland forest with wild Sumatran elephants, tigers and hundreds of species of birds. Rafflesia, the biggest flower in the world can be seen when it is blooming at Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park, on the southern coastline of Sumatra. The province has a great potential in agriculture, however, its population is small.Agriculture provides the main income to its population, from farming, fishery and plantations. Clove, coffee and coconut grow extensively along the southern coast. While on the eastern part and hinterland they cultivate pepper, coffee, cassava, cocoa and rice, the tobacco growing area is around Lake Ranu in the northern part. Btw, thanks to MZ Ghani for the pictures!
