Jungle trekking is a great way of exploring Gunung Leuser National Park, seeing wildlife up-close and learning about North Sumatra’s ecosystem. If you love adventure, exploring jungle, learning about flora, fauna, and culture then Bukit Lawang is the best place to go. It is one of the hidden paradises of Indonesia, often referred to as ‘Orangutan Country’.
BUKIT LAWANG ADVENTURE arranges jungle trekking tours through the rainforest of Gunung Leuser National Park, starting from the small village of Bukit Lawang. During these trekkings you have the opportunity to observe the endangered great apes (Sumatran orangutan) in their natural habitat, and discover many other species of exotic animals, flowers and plants.
Bukit Lawang Adventure is very concerned about the wellbeing of all animals who call Gunung Leuser National Park their home. Therefore we only allow visitors in good health to go into the jungle, we do not feed animals and most importantly, we keep our distance. Bukit Lawang Adventure cares about the ecological foot print we leave behind. We make sure our jungle trekking tours do not affect any flora or fauna and that nothing (litter, rubbish) is left behind. Bukit Lawang Adventure only works together with licensed, experienced guides who are approved by ITGA (Indonesian Tourist Guide Association).
