Jungle Treks

Full packages & Budget Options

For those who want the chance to see orangutans in the wild, but are short on time or on a tight budget,  a Short Jungle Trek can meet your needs.  

For those with the time, ability and sense of adventure who want to leave civilisation behind, see wildlife in undisturbed jungles, and camp along the jungle rivers at night, a Long Jungle Trek is recommended.

All of our Jungle Treks take place in Gunung Leuser National Park, one of the last true Edens on earth, straddling North Sumatra and Aceh Provinces.  This jungle is a gift to the world and it is under severe threat.  We want to ensure it's value as an intact rainforest.  We welcome you to join us and share your support for this irreplaceable ecosystem.  Every person who visits in a responsible manner helps to add value to keeping this rainforest intact.
