We start around 8-9 a.m. after breakfast at your hotel. We walk for around 6-7 hours into the Gunung-Leuser National Park and will along the way see a lot of wildlife, such gibbons, leaf monkeys, longtail and pigtail macaques, flying squirrels, Sumatran peacocks, hornbills and of course orangutans.
As we walk through the jungle, your guide will show you the medicinal plants and how to use them in practice. After a nice lunch in the afternoon, we continue towards our camp site where we will rest, get a hot drink, take a refreshing bath in the clean stream and then we will end our day at dark with a well-deserved diner at camp fire. Overnight in the jungle camp.

Waking up in the middle of the jungle is a magical feeling. You hear the morning sounds of the birds and the excitement of the gibbons in the distance as you breath the fresh air.
After a good breakfast, we get ready to leave the camp and walk for 5 to 6 hours in the jungle towards another camp site (usually “Aras Pinang”). Along the way, we enjoy the nature and wildlife, try all sorts of ‘jungle-food’ and how to recognize them and use them. We have lunch in the jungle somewhere half-way.
At the camp we can relax and swim in a clean jungle river. We end the day with dinner at campfire.

After breakfast, we start our trek to the next campsite (usually “Batu Lintang”) for about 5-6 hours and continue our search for wildlife. Now that we are deeper in the jungle it is possible that we see a Sumatran elephant!
Upon arrival at the campsite, we get a hot drink and take a shower in small stream near the waterfall! We end the day with diner at camp fire.

For the last time we enjoy a jungle breakfast in the serene setting deep in the jungle. We explore the jungle in the morning in search of even more exotic wildlife that what we have seen so far. There is also plenty of time to relax and just absorb the beautiful views of the primary rainforest.
Then, our tube rafts will be brought and prepared, and we head for an exciting adventure on the jungle river (alternatively, we can return by foot depending on your personal wish or for safety reasons)!
