Three day trek Bukit Lawang North Sumatra
The trek starts at 8:30 am after breakfast. In the jungle, you will have the opportunity to see orangutans and other mammals including gibbons, Thomas leaf monkeys, long tail macaques, pig tail macaques, Hornbill and Great Argus (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. By staying three days in the jungle, you will have the opportunity to see more animals. Arrive in the campsite by a waterfall in the afternoon, spend the night in the jungle and fall asleep with the sounds of the jungle. Your dinner will be cooked by our jungle chefs and bedding will be provided.
Your guide will go at a pace that works for you and there will be around 5-6 hours walking on the first day.
On the second day you will trek for 4-5 hours with the opportunity to observe more animals. If you’re lucky you may even see wild orangutans and the Black Siamang (Symphalangus syndactylus, black furred gibbon). Sometimes on a three day trek, it’s possible to see tiger tracks or even observe a tiger from a (safe!) distance. Arriving at the campsite late afternoon, you can relax by the river. Dinner will be cooked for you again and you can cool off swimming in the river and relaxing with your guide and other tourists.
Wake up with the sounds of the jungle and enjoy your breakfast prepared for you by the river. You can choose to walk 2-4 hours, trekking back to Bukit Lawang or rafting down the river on rubber tubes with your guide helping steer the way.
