Tour description

day 1

Your English-speaking guide will pick you up at your hotel in the morning and together you will start an exciting 3-day Jungle Trekking. You will cross a river and walk uphill for a short period of time before reaching Jungle Point in the Leuser Sibayak National Park. From there, your guide will share his knowledge about animals and plants within the rainforest as you continue walking passing amazing scenic viewpoints overlooking the whole valley of the Bohorok River. 

At noon, you’ll arrive at a picturesque location where you will dine on the famous national Indonesian dish nasi goreng and exotic fruits. Resuming your trek, you’ll head uphill to a fantastic view point. After a short break, you continue trekking upstream to the Bohorok River while looking out for more wildlife, more species of plants and trees fx wild orchid. If you are lucky, many gibbons, Pigtail macaques, Thomas Leaf Monkeys, flying squirrels, Sumatran peacocks, hornbills, or even wild orangutans might cross your path! 

Around 4:00 pm, you arrive at the campsite near the river where you will stay overnight. Here it’s time to enjoy and go for a swim in the jungle swimming pool, relaxing with a cup of coffee or tea while your chef prepares a 5 star dinner with a wide range of local food. The perfect ending of the day is to experience the magical night in the middle of the jungle. Enjoy special sounds of nature and amazing stars while having fun with guides playing games around campfire. Mattress, blankets, pillows are available in the five star hotel jungle tent.

The next morning, you wake up to the sounds of monkeys and birds. After a delicious breakfast, you are ready for trekking. As you enter deeper into the rainforest, your chances of encountering wildlife increases.

At lunch, your guides prepare a simple jungle meal at a marvelous Tarzan spot. Fantastic scenery along the way through the national park makes for memorable experiences in the afternoon. 

Our team will lay out your camp site for the second night next to Bohorok River and treat you to another exotic Indonesian dinner and refreshments. Jungle swimming pool is also available here. Enjoy the evening at your jungle camp by listening to jungle stories told by your guides.

Upon waking in the jungle, you will be enchanted by the sounds of nature. Around the campsite, you may see Sumatran monitor lizards, tortoises, and colourful river butterflies. After breakfast, you can trek for about three hours or just relax at an amazing waterfall next to your campsite.

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.

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