If you really want to immerse in the jungle and have more opportunity to see all its wonderful wildlife then this three day jungle trek could be for you. During the three day trek you have more chance to see Sumatra's wildlife and really get a feel for life in the jungle.
Your English speaking guide will meet you at your hotel at 08.30am and you will set off by 09.00am. Your trek will start just on the edge of Bukit Lawang as you go uphill through the plantations and finally entering the jungle. During the first few hours you will have a high chance of seeing semi-wild and wild orangutans. You will continue trekking through the rainforest with some up and down hill walking. You will pass by small creeks with crystal clear water. After a couple of hours you will stop and your guide will prepare you a fresh-fruit platter. Take this opportunity to rehydrate and sit back and relax while listening to the sounds of the jungle.
You will then continue your trek deeper into the jungle, where your guide can point out various plant species and you can learn more about this ecosystem of the Gunung Leuser National Park.
By 3.30pm you will arrive at your campsite based close to a clear river, perfect to take a swim and refresh your body.
This evening you can relax and enjoy a banquet of local foods prepared by our camp chef. You can spend the evening learning traditional jungle games and singing songs. The nighttime offers a different jungle experience, with many new animals’ sounds coming to life. Your campsite is designed to be a comfortable experience, with a thick foam mattress provided, mosquito net, and blanket and bed sheet.
The next day you will wake with the sun shining through the trees and the sound of birds calling. The campsite area offers the chance to see hornbills and other birds, as well as monitor lizards and butterflies.
Your chef will prepare you hot coffee or tea with breakfast before you set off on another 5-6 hour hike.
