Tour Plan

1 Transport to Bukit Lawang

Our driver will help you communicate with the locals.

2 Jungle Trekking

Today we go on a 2-day jungle tour and with a little luck you can see orangutans in the wild. Our guides are licensed by the national park office and have years of experience in jungle trekking. There are two guides available for the day. You will be picked up from your accommodation at 9 a.m. and then walk into the jungle together. The hike lasts about 6 hours including breaks for photos and food.

In the afternoon you reach the camp near a river. You can jump into the water or just relax. Our cook will prepare an Indonesian dinner for you (vegetarian options possible). You will sleep in a semi-open shelter surrounded by the sounds of the river and jungle.

Alternative: If you don’t want to spend the night in the jungle, you can do only a 1-day trek and do more activities in Bukit Lawang the next day.

3 Jungle Trekking

After waking up, our cook will provide you with coffee, tea and breakfast. You can jump back into the fresh water of the river. Depending on the campsite we will then continue the jungle adventure and trek for about 2 hours or we will go to a waterfall where you can swim and relax. You can also just relax in the camp. After lunch we leave the camp for the traditional jungle raft. The afternoon is free.
