This 1-day tour from Medan, which includes a short but memorable jungle trek in Gunung Leuser National Park, is an unforgettable experience for travelers with limited time! During four hours in the rainforest you will have the big chance to see Orangutans.
We are different: as opposed to other operators in Bukit Lawang, EcoTravel treks are limited in size and number due to environmental issues. The focus of our sustainable jungle treks is on quality and safety rather than on quantity. On top of that our guides are meticulous about collecting all the garbage left behind – even waste from other groups. Please find further information about jungle trekking with our EcoTravel team in Gunung Leuser National Park here:
This relaxing walk to the famous Bat Cave near Bukit Lawang followed by a walk to the beautiful Landak River is a highlight for cave lovers and bird watchers. As a bonus, some monkeys, lizards, butterflies and – if you are lucky – orangutans may cross your way.
The jungle village of Tangkahan is a 2,5 hour drive from Bukit Lawang (one way). Famous for its Sumatran elephants it also offers a natural, unspoilt environment. By joining elephant activity in Tangkahan, EcoTravel guests can add to the benefit of the local community.
Our 5-day trek gives you a unique experience of life in the rainforest. You will roam really deep into the jungle and stay overnight at different camps in Gunung Leuser National Park. While hiking up and down the hills and crossing rivers you acquire traditional jungle survival knowledge. If you are lucky there is a chance to see elephants or even foot prints of Sumatran tigers! For this jungle trek you need to be really fit and healthy enough to trek for several hours each day.
