EcoTravel’s Orangutan trek is the most popular option to discover the Sumatran jungle. On a 2-day jungle trek you will have the big chance of seeing Sumatran orangutans and other wildlife up-close in their natural habitat. In the evening enjoy a delicious “jungle dinner“ on your campsite, then dream away to the melodies of the rainforest and wake up in the morning to the sounds of birds and monkeys. After your jungle trek your “jungle taxi” will take you back to your accommodation in Bukit Lawang by traditional tube-rafting down Bohorok River. Unlike other providers in Bukit Lawang, our sustainable jungle treks and selected Sumatra tours focus on quality and safety rather than quantity. This is why our team has been awarded several times over the past few years e.g. “Eco Friendly Tour Operator of the Year 2018”, “Travel & Hospitality Award Winner” and received the “Hall Of Fame Status” (2019) and "Travellers Choice" (2020/2021) on TripAdvisor.
