Location not guaranteed to be exactly as shown on map, but pretty close. It is the track to the east from the 7km post south of Sinabang. Walk about 700m to the top of the hill, wait for dusk, play the tape.....Seems to be a good area for the Simeulue 'race' of Long-tailed Macaque too.
Many thanks to James Eaton for the Simeulue details
