We respect and follow the ethical jungle guidelines set by Indonesian Tourist Guides Association (ITGA).
When trekking, you will be entering the Gunung Leuser National Park, this is home to a number of critically endangered animals; including the Sumatran Orangutan. It is our priority that proper jungle guidelines are followed in order to protect and preserve the rainforest and unique ecosystem.
In order to enter the jungle, first a permit must be purchased from the Guiding Association in Bukit Lawang, and a fee paid to the Association, this price is included in the trek.
Here are some important rules set by the Guiding Association
Rule 1- Do not feed the orangutans
Rule 2- Keep distance between you and any wild animals
Rule 3- Maximum of 8 people per booking
Rule 4- Do not touch wild animals
Rule 5- If you are sick, you can't enter the jungle
Rule 6- Do not leave anything in the jungle (plastic or organic rubbish)
Rule 7- Do not use flash photography to photo wild animals
