Jungle treks

from 3 hours to 5 days

When you arrive in Bukit Lawang, we pick you up and bring you to your hotel to discuss the trek with you.
The next day in the morning we start to the jungle at 9am. You’ll mostly see semi-wild orangutans on the first day. The more days you spend trekking, the deeper we venture into the jungle. Now, you will have to look closely to spot the animals that are hiding on the trees and under the leaves.
Especially when you go trekking for more than two days, we will show you the foods of the jungle and turn your “jungle hike” into a survival expedition.

On each day, we will walk between 4 and 7 hours through the rainforest; discovering its beauty and its secrets.
In the late afternoon, we arrive at the campsite where our cook prepares tea and coffee.
The camps are always at the bank of a river or small stream – some even close to waterfalls – where you can dive in and refresh yourself. And after you’ve cooled down in the river, dinner is already waiting for you.

Every one of our treks finishes with a rafting adventure down Bohorok River: On traditional tube rafts, we bring you back to Bukit Lawang (all your things will be packed in plastic bags – so don’t worry about your cameras and other belongings).

What you can see on the treks in Gunung Leuser National Park:

  • orangutans (wild and semi-wild),
  • long-tailed macaques,
  • Thomas’s leaf monkeys,
  • pig-tailed macaques,
  • gibbons,
  • siamangs,
  • snakes (vipers and pythons),
  • hornbills,
  • a wide array of insects, reptiles;
  • and no to forget all the different trees and plants…
