For travelers on a tight schedule you can join us for the “Orangutan Tour”, an all-inclusive 3 day, 2 night exclusive tour in Bukit lawang. You will have the opportunity to see some of the last surviving Sumatran orangutans in their natural habitat; the main attraction of the Gunung Leuser National Park.
Pick up from Medan airport or you hotel by private car. Travel around 3-4 hours to Bukit Lawang where you will stay in a guesthouse by the river.
Depending on your time of arrival you can visit the bat cave or go on a tour of a nearby village to experience the local way of life.
The trek starts at 8.30am after breakfast. In the jungle, you will have the opportunity to see orangutans and other mammals including gibbons, thomas leaf monkeys, long tail maccaques, pig tail maccaques, tukans and great argusts (the sumatran peacock). Along the way, your guide will inform you about the flora and fauna in the jungle, including the medicinal uses of plants in the jungle. This trek is good for people who have a limited time in Bukit Lawang, or who want to see the orangutans but prefer not to sleep in the jungle. On the one day trek you will spend around 5-6 hours walking through the jungle; giving you more opportunity to absorb your surroundings and observe animals in the wild. You have the option to walk back to Bukit Lawang or raft down the river on rubber tubes with your guide helping steer the way.
If you have time, there are a variety of options for short trips on day 3 (at an additional price), such as planting trees to help reforestation or visiting a local school. Alternatively, we can drop you back in Medan to go to your hotel or the airport.
