The two day trekking option is the most popular option. This trek allows you to experience the jungle and enjoy one night camping in the Gunung Leuser National Park.
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 very high chance to see 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 spent the evening learning traditional jungle games and singing songs. The nightime 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 matress provided, mosquito net, 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 butterfies.
Your chef will prepare you hot coffee or tea with breakfast. Then you will get the chance to visit a beautiful waterfall before an exhilirating raft ride back to your starting point.
