The 3 hour trek in the jungle of the Gunung Leuser National Park is ideal as a “beginner’s tour”. Also ideal for families with small children. We start from our base camp in Bukit Lawang and cross rubber and cocoa plantations to the entrance of the national park. From here we explore the jungle with its animals, flora and fauna. We will show you plants that are used for traditional medicine. We do not give any guarantee, but maybe you will see orangutans, gibbons, tucans or turtles. The whole jungle tour lasts 3 hours and ends in Bukit Lawang. The 3h jungle trekking in Bukit Lawang includes entrance to the National Park, an English speaking guide and fruit we will provide you with throughout the tour.
If you want to do an extended tour, a 1 day jungle trekking in Bukit Lawang is a good idea. You will be picked up from your accommodation in Bukit Lawang and also we will go through the cocoa and rubber plantations to the entrance of the national park. The entire hike – including breaks – takes between 6 and 7 hours. After you have explored the flora and fauna in the morning, we will spoil you with a local vegetarian lunch. The tour will continue until the campground near the river Bohorok is reached in the afternoon. There you can cool off and relax in the cool water. You can then decide for yourself whether to return to our base camp or end the day with a rafting trip downstream. The 1 day trek includes entrance to the national park, an English speaking guide, lunch, fruits and rafting.
We also offer the 2 day trekking in the Gunung Leuser National Park, which is very popular with our customers. In the morning we will explore the jungle with lunch until we finally reach the campsite near the river in the afternoon, where you can rest and relax while our cook prepares an Indonesian dinner. Afterwards we will end the evening together by candlelight before you sleep in the semi-open shelter with the sounds of the jungle and the river. The next morning we leave the campsite after breakfast and either continue the jungle adventure or hike to the waterfall where you can swim or relax. After lunch we return along the river to Bukit Lawang. Entrance to the National Park, English speaking guide, meals, equipment (pillow, mattress, blanket, mosquito net) and rafting are included.
The most intensive jungle trekking in Sumatra is the 3 day tour, which starts again at your accommodation and takes us to the campsite where we will stay overnight. The next morning the hike continues through the jungle, where we try to see wild animals and orangutas and learn more about them. After lunch we hike to the next campsite where we will spend the rest of the day and night. The last morning of the jungle adventure can be spent in the camp or at the waterfall. After lunch we start our way back along the river. This trek includes the same services as the 2-day trek.
