We were taken to our accommodation where our wonderful guide Adi gave us a little briefing about the trek we were about to do the following day.... More

We really enjoyed the trip and it was very moving to see the orang utans (4 female, 5 "babies" and one male). In the beginning we saw several orangs and there were a lot of people around, but when we moved on we didn't see any other people until we arrived the camp. The camp site is rustic and it... More
