Tour description

In the morning at 8:30 am our English speaking guide will pick you up at your guesthouse. After a short walk you will cross the Bohorok River, then go uphill and enter the national park directly via the old orangutan feeding area which is still highly popular with a lot of orangutans. Afterwards you will continue your trek through the rainforest to a small creek and stop there for a rest by its clear waters. Then you will hike up again and walk for about one hour, passing unforgettable scenic viewpoints overlooking the whole valley of the Bohorok River.

Around noon you will stop at an amazing hidden waterfall in the jungle where you can swim in the fresh, clear water before you are enjoying your local lunch. Afterwards you will trek for another hour and explore the magical rainforest up the hill to a fantastic view point with a lot of wild orchids around. After a short break you continue trekking upstream to the Bohorok River, always watching out for wildlife along the way. Towards the end of your jungle adventure there is even more fun! Your “jungle taxi” with your personal captain will bring you back to your guesthouse by traditional tube-rafting down the Bohorok River.
