From Medan we were brought to Bukit Lawang where we spent one night and started the next morning at 9 am on time. Right at the beginning we saw the first orangutans and other monkeys. Our guides Safrol and Dian spoke very good English and tried to explain as much as possible about the plants and animals in the jungle. A successful conclusion was the rafting over the river back to the village on the third day. In the evening we had dinner with Safrol and Dian and one or two beers, which was not a matter of course for us, but it was a great pleasure for us, because this was not part of the program anymore and was their free time. During the whole trek the whole team worked hard to make the trip an unforgettable experience. All of them took great care that the animals were not harassed, the plants were not damaged and no rubbish was left behind. We are still very enthusiastic about the three days and can only recommend it.
