Hike in the rainforest and
see orangutans in the wild
The Gunung Leuser National Park, which covers an area of around 9.000 sq km, is home to an impressive and diverse wildlife that includes tigers, rhinos, elephants, gibbons, reptiles and of course orangutans. There are also more than 380 species of birds and a huge number of flowers, trees and other plants.
The main point of access is the village of Bukit Lawang, from where treks are organized to enable you to encounter the wildlife in its natural habitat. A permit is needed to enter the Gunung Leuser National Park (cost of 150,000 rupiahs / person) and it is highly recommended to be accompanied by a licensed guide as finding your way through the dense forest will be an impossible mission.
While in the jungle, you should remember that you are in a very fragile eco-system and that diseases brought by humans are one of the biggest threats to the wildlife. Please remember that you should NOT feed the orangutans you encounter and that no rubbish should be left behind.
rainforest is beautiful, by being responsible tourists and travel professionals, we all make sure that we keep it this way.
