idGuides invites beginner hikers to advanced trail runners. Our Easy Escape Jakarta Community Trails provide a great experience for everyone. There is no deep or technical river crossings, scrambling, ropework or climbing required. Trails follow paths well-travelled by farmers leading to their padi fields, coffee and clove gardens. 

Difficulty and Rating

Difficulty varies depending on the trail category you select. All trails are slippery when wet (especially concrete / stone trails). Trails are not purpose-built for tourism but developed from years of use by farmers. Trekking in Sentul can be easy in dry conditions along Family Walks trails, but Half Day / Full Day All-Terrain & Highland Trails require good balance, footwork, proper trek shoes and realistic assessment of personal capacity. During the rainy season, please note our Rainy Season Protocols

We use a Difficulty Rating of 1-5 on all of our trails. 1 = very easy, 5 = very challenging. 

Discounts on offer:

Children : Ages 0-3 free. For Groups (15–30 people) depending on requirements.

Price includes:

idGuides Community Trail Guide, Jakarta Base Support, Tea & Coffee, Village access permit and parking, idGuides Connect revenue-share contribution.

If you require idGuides International Expedition Leaders and English-speaking National Leaders, these can be booked in advance to lead your trip, for an additional fee. Ask for details.
