Well we touched down in Medan after a few days in Java. We took a taxi to the Deli River Hotel where we were greeted by the lovely Ellie and fresh banana juice.( may I add here that Deli River arranged our tours, booked our plane tickets to Padang, let us leave our luggage whilst we were in Tangkahan, and gave us a breakfast box as we were leaving them at 4am. Ok so they are not the cheapest in town but their service is impecable even down to the mossie repellent on the table at their restuarant. 5* Deli River)
DAY 1 Deli River arranged a driver and also a guide to take us to Bukkit Lawang. We opted for the jungle trek which steered away from the feeding platforms, are we glad after around 1 hour an orang came into sight, it was definately worth the walk.
