The general answer is no as this is an Open Trip and we will follow according to the itenrary. However, if the group can agree and decide, then we are ok to be flexible. 

In general, the period between March till December are the best months to visit Indonesia. This is the period of the dry season. 

With that being said, we recommend customers not to be too bothered by it because you are only here for a few days , it is no guarantee that even if you come in the dry season, it won’t rain or it will always be rainy during the monsoon season. We believe alot is down to luck. December/August are still the peak period of tourist in Indonesia.

We usually try to keep each group to a maximum of 8 people. We believe in the benefits of small group trekking. However, we may have multiple groups of up to 8 during the tour dates. 

The accommodation are listed in the itinerary. The accommodation are about 3-4 star hotels which are clean and nice. 

For this tour, it is preferred that you arrive before 10am on the first day and you depart Sumba Island after 6pm on the 4th day.
