North Sumatra : Leuser National Park Jungle Hike & Safari

Do you want your very own taste of Sumatran jungle adventure condensed into four days? This trip brings you two of Sumatra’s main attractions to give you that burst of Tarzanesque adventure you’re looking for.

Medan is Sumatra’s major metropolis, the economic and commercial center for the region. From here we will head to Bukit Lawang, a lovely little town located at the outskirts of a jungle. Part of this jungle belongs to the Gunung Leuser National Park, one of the richest tropical rainforests in South East Asia. This is not only one of the few places in the world where we will be able to see the critically endangered orangutans in the world, but also hosts a multitude of other wildlife - gibbons, Thomas leaf monkeys, longtail and pigtail macaques, flying squirrels, Sumatran peacocks, and hornbills! Our journey through the park will take us to unforgettable scenic viewpoints and a hidden waterfall where we can have a dip in its cool, clear waters. This beautiful wildlife paradise will have one more high point in store for us - we will be taken back to the guesthouse at Bukit Lawang by tube rafting down the Bohorok River!

The next day, we will be heading down to Tangkahan, for a true off-the-map adventure. At this abode for elephants, we can wash the majestic creatures, or just take a swim in the river. An hour long elephant trek later awaits us, where we ’ll be able to experience the jungle in an entirely new perspective.

This trip is perfect for families and individuals looking for splash of zest in their holiday. If this sounds like you, come and join us for an unforgettable holiday like no other.
