Get lost in the raw Sumatran jungle where the trees chatter with monkeys and the waters sparkle. This trip into the isolated jungle wilderness will take you into the untamed heart of Sumatra, the UNESCO World Heritage site of Gunung Leuser National Park - packed with monkeys, exotic birds and giant rafflesia flowers. You’ll stay in a rustic bungalow right by the Kualsa Buluh River, and feel a million miles away from the modern world.

Your day-by-day itinerary

Bukit Lawang to Tangkahan

This morning, you’ll cross the local hanging bridge to find your 4WD waiting on the other side of the river. You’ll drive deeper and deeper into the jungle, for 4-5 hours to secluded Tangkahan, where you’ll stay in a rustic wooden bungalow in the heart of the jungle. While there’s hardly any electricity and no warm water, it’s incredible to be completely immersed in the rainforest.


Sumatran Jungle & Departure

After breakfast you’ll head out tubing down the river, surrounded by beautiful jungle with the occasional monkey looking on. It’s a gentle ride, but there will be a guide with you just in case. At the end, you’ll take a refreshing dive and enjoy a mini picnic, before walking along the river and through plantations back to your lodge. In the afternoon there is time to hang in your hammock or the hot spring. The next day your jungle trip comes to an end and you’ll get ready for your next adventure.

“From the moment I first stepped off the plane, I was swept away by Indonesia’s charm and beauty- so much so, that I’ve since lost count of how many times I’ve been! It’s got beaches, cultural wonders, wildlife & warm weather. What’s not to love?”
