Jungle Camping in 3 Days 2 Nights

Been there recently? 

Nestled by the riverside right on the edge of Gunung Leuser National Park is Bukit Lawang, a little village that also doubles as one of the gateways to enter Gunung Leuser National Park. Together with your guide, feast your eyes on so many new things to explore, and enjoy the jungle sound that keeps you at ease.

Bring your medicine if you think you need them. Trekking level is medium so proper trekking shoes are needed for your comfort. Last but not least, gear up your camera because orangutan in sighting deep in the jungle is not very common!

Day 1: Start of Adventure!

Our guide will meet you at meeting point in Bukit Lawang, and start the trek. You will walk around 6 to 7 hours deep in to the Gunung Leuser National Park in search for orangutans and other wildlife in the area. The pathway is not always a flat walk but some hikes up and down will be met. As you go deeper into the jungle, the bigger your chance is to see orangutans cross your way, gibbons, thomas leaf monkeys, longtail and pigtail macaques. Sometimes flying squirrel or Sumatrans peacocks will flash by. You will arrive at the camping ground and stay on a really basic, nature camp where bamboo are stood up covered with tarpaulins that stretched over a branch. A real jungle camp! Simple meals will be cooked on the spot while you enjoy sitting by the campfire listening through the jungle sound. Notes: if you are starting your trip from Medan, we can pick you up a day before the trip for a fee. Speak to one of our travel advisor today to receive free quotes for your holiday!

Day 2: Deeper Into The Jungle

Surrounded by the morning jungle noise, freshen up with simple breakfast cooked by your guide. After you are ready, continue your exploration in Gunung Leuser National Park. Another 6 or 7 hours journey with stops along the way filled with amazing viewpoints or wildlife in sight! Feel free to ask anything to your guide, as he would be more than happy to help you learn more about the wildlife and wild flowers and plants along the way. Your camping ground tonight will be closer to the river where you take a refreshing swim while your guide cooks your dinner.

Day 3: Return To The Modern World

Enjoy your last simple breakfast in the jungle as today is the end of your adventure in Gunung Leuser National Park. A short three hours walk will take you back to Bukit Lawang where the trip ends here.
