This tribe rejects all forms of modern technology, such as phones, cameras and other electronics.
With an ultra-simplistic way of life, the Baduy Tribe live in voluntary isolation and receives no education, no healthcare and does not rely on any sort of government.
They focus on a unique set of cultural and religious practices rather than laws and regulations from the government, thus effectively sealing their community off from the rest of the world.
Visiting the Baduy Tribe is like a complete digital detox so do not expect loads of snapshots from there, a peek of the phone or camera will upset them.
Although the route to the Baduy community is scenic, it’s not an easy one – you will need to hike for around 10 kilometres before meeting them, and we strongly advise you to wear proper hiking shoes for safety purposes.
While there, consider contributing to the community by purchasing their handicrafts. A range of fabrics, scarves and accessories are for sale to visitors – you can even see the tribal women handmaking their pieces.
