4.2
#2 of 47 in Parks in West Sumatra
Charge your camera and bring binoculars for your tour of Sianok canyon, a meandering gorge with steep cliff walls. On the floor of the canyon you can visit rice paddies and a village, as well as a Japanese bunker embedded in the hillside. There's not much to do here except look and relax; a small restaurant does offer refreshments and a chance to rent a canoe for a brief river escapade. Put Sianok canyon into our Bukittinggi day trip planning site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
