Arrival in Bukit Lawang
When you arrive in Medan, you’ll be met at the airport and transferred to Bukit Lawang by private car. The landscape of Sumatra is completely different to the other Indonesian islands, making it a scenic and fascinating drive through this beautiful countryside. In the afternoon you’ll arrive at your hotel. Your basic room has cold running water so you can freshen up with a cold but refreshing shower.
Orangutans, Jungle Trek & Departure
Today, you’ll head off on a trek through the jungle. It’s hilly here, so you’ll face the odd climb and scramble up through trees, clinging onto branches and roots. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot orangutans swinging through the jungle canopy just a few metres above your head. The guides know the orangutans well, so they’re familiar with their habits and can guide you to the best spots.
After breakfast the next day this trip comes to an end, and you’ll make your way to your next destination.

Upgrade to our Standard accommodation
You can upgrade your accommodation in Bukit Lawang to a hotel on the hill overlooking the river, where you’ll have hot water and your own balcony looking out over the jungle. It isn’t high-end luxury, but has lots of character and a little more comfort than our Simple option.
