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:
