Tour description

At this 1-day ethical jungle trekking you will be picked up at about 9 pm after breakfast at the hotel where you are staying. We cross the Bohorok River and begin the adventure in the jungle. Our goal is to see orangutans, but we also hope to spot other animals. Along the way, the guide shares his knowledge of the animals and plants we pass. If you see something interesting on the tour, feel free to ask the guide what it is.

During the tour, exotic delicious fruits will be served, that are harvested from this region. Around noon we will stop at the “Jungle restaurant” and get a delicious lunch. Afterwards we continue our ethical trekking for a few hours, where we continue to explore the jungle. In the afternoon we arrive at the jungle station where we take the jungle taxi back to your hotel.

During this part of our tour it’s important not to feed animals or throw plastic into the wild, but instead put it in your backpack until we get back to the hotel.

how can we help you?

Here are some of the most common questions we get from our customers. Hopefully, this will help you. Otherwise, don’t hesitate to contact us!

All of our trekking guides speak English… and a little orangutan language ; )

The items you will need most are cash money, good walking shoes/hiking boots, a flashlight/torch and mosquito repellent. There is possibility to change money in Bukit Lawang.

You might see orangutans on our jungle treks, but there is no guarantee! These animals live out in the wild, and it’s hard to know where they will be at any point of the day. But our jungle treks leave Bukit Lawang at 8:30 am and pass the old orangutan feeding area, so you have a good chance to see semi-wild orangutans up close.

Just bring your personal belongings in a small backpack and 1 large bottle of water. Our team will provide sleeping bags as well as safety jackets for tube rafting. There will be a porter to carry the equipment (tent, camping mats, mosquito nets) and food supplies.

You can either pay the full amount or pay a 30% deposit, and you can pay the rest of the fee when you arrive in Bukit Lawang. Send us an email and we will send you our account number to which you can transfer the money.

If you cancel at least:

Two weeks before the trekking date: We will refund your deposit minus any transaction fees.

One week before the trekking date: If you have paid the full amount, you will get a full refund minus 10% and transaction fees. If you only have paid the deposit, you will get half of your deposit back minus transaction fees.

Less than 24 hours before the trekking date: No refund will be provided.

We will use it to cover your treks and tours cancellations, as well as compensation for your guide.
