Responsible Trekking in Bukit Lawang
Bukit Lawang is a great place to start your jungle experience of the Gunung Leuser National Park. The trails are well established and it is reasonably easy to see ex-captive Orangutans lively freely, Thomas-leaf Monkeys, Macaque monkeys and other wildlife. Go deeper into the jungle to see wild orangutans, hornbills and other interesting wildlife.
The jungle is mountainous so involves uphill and downhill hikes. However, all our treks are suitable for anyone which is fit and healthy.
We've highlighted our most popular jungle treks below.
Discover the hidden forests at Landak River
Eco trek into the hidden Karst forests, rich in biodiversity with a small population of wild Sumatran Orangutans. No established trails, untouched by mass tourism, explore the huge towering rocks formations and cave systems for a really wild experience.
What People Say
Half day eco-trek, July 2017
I had a great experience at my very last day in Bukit Lawang! The guide is not feeding or calling the animal. The benefits: Wildlife stays wild and you can observe the natural behaviour of the animals.
