Welcome to Sumatra Orangutan Discovery
Sumatra Orangutan Discovery is a sustainable jungle trekking and tour agency based in Bukit Lawang, North Sumatra. We are passionate about creating life changing holiday experiences to explore the unique ecosystem of the Gunung Leuser National Park and the culture of Northern Sumatra.
We follow the ethical jungle guidelines set by the Indonesian Tourist Guides Association.
Find out how we are working to protect the environment and how you can help too.
We offer a range of ethical jungle trekking options. Here are our most popular treks in the Gunung Leuser National Park. If there is a question you wish to ask, please check our FAQ's or get in touch with us.
We only use certified experienced guides.
We keep our jungle trekking bookings private, unless you ask, we will not place you with another group. Smaller groups provide a higher quality experience and give a higher chance to sight wildlife.
Our jungle trekking tours include all necessary meals, fresh fruit, guiding fee, entrance permit, tent, bedding and mosquito net for overnight stay. There are no hidden costs. Please inform us ahead of time if you are vegetarian or vegan.
For each booking with us we will plant one fruit tree on the border of the Gunung Leuser National Park.
We support local community projects and small businesses in Sumatra.
We are reducing our use of single-use plastics and using 100% biodegradable cassava bags.
