Overview
Spot semi-wild orangutans plus gibbons and maybe even jungle turtles on this intimate guided hike through the Sumatran rain forest. Setting out from Bukit Lawang in a group no larger than six, hike to a campsite by a river or a waterfall, then swim, eat dinner, and chat around a bonfire. The next day, hike even deeper into the forest before tubing the Bohorok River back to base.

The highlught of the whole trip was the guides. They were so informative and patient ( we were not the fastest trekkers!) The guest house was lovely, food in the jungle was superb! We were so lucky with the animals we saw, the guides were always on the lookout ! Bukit lawang is a beautiful place full of great food, good beers, the sights and sounds of the jungle, beautiful, friendly people and just a positive feeling everywhere. Absolutely will go back
