Gunung Leuser National Park, but specialize in taking guests on eco-treks to less explored areas and forests.
We are revealing other enchanting vulnerable environments to our guests. Helping to protect threatened areas of forests by working with local people and supporting local communities.
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 and have a small population of wild Sumatran Orangutans. No established trails, untouched by mass tourism, you can explore the huge towering rocks formations and cave systems for a really wild experience.
Our main focus for these eco-treks is sustainability and eco-friendly practices, which will help preserve the local area and support the local community. By joining one of these eco-treks you are giving something back and helping us to develop ecotourism in the correct way.

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.
