Tour Description

Start your adventure at 8 a.m. as we depart from Medan. If you arrive early from Singapore or Kuala Lumpur, we’d be delighted to pick you up from Kuala Namu Airport. Your journey takes you on a 3.5-hour drive through lush rubber and palm oil plantations to the enchanting town of Bohorok, situated in the Gunung Leuser Nature Reserve.

Here, you’ll be surrounded by the lush jungle, and the chances are high that you’ll encounter orangutans in their natural habitat. During a 3-hour trek, guided by experienced local experts, the secrets of the rainforest slowly unfold. This adventure opens doors to a world inhabited by magnificent orangutans, Siamangs (long-armed apes), Thomas Leaf Monkeys, long-tail Macaques, gibbons, various reptiles, and a symphony of birds.

After your jungle expedition, we’ll return to Bohorok and then make our way back to Medan. We conclude the tour by dropping you off around 7 p.m. at your address in Medan.

Daily Departures: We lead you into the heart of the jungle every day.

What to Bring: An extra T-shirt, a towel, and mosquito repellent are recommended.

Return via River Tubing: As an alternative, you can choose to conclude the trek with an adventurous descent via river tubing, offering a unique and refreshing way to return to the village. Price on Application.


If you wish to venture deeper into the jungle, we offer you the opportunity to extend your trek to 6 hours, a true immersion in this remarkable landscape. However, this extension requires an overnight stay in Bukit Lawang, turning your day trip into an unforgettable package tour. Price on Application.
