hmmm what to do in BL, the classic jungle trekking to see that famous orang utan. there are several trek available, 3hr, 5hr, overnite trek, 3 days, 5 days, 7days.

if you have a few days there then the 1 nite overnite trek is recommended. you get to look for the wildlife (no guarantee of sighting) and you get to stay over night in the jungle, if you never do this before then its definitely something to be experienced.

then you get to tubbing back into town tru the river. other than trekking there is caving, 2 cave in BL to be done, bat cave (no batman inside, i checked hehe) and ship cave.

BL is 2- 2.5hr from medan and bus available from pinang baris station

beach at the north coast would be pulau weh all the way up at the very beginning of indonesia
