This expedition is perfect for those wanting to trek in areas not often frequented by tourists
Two days of trekking takes in some spectacular scenery and nature, as does the exhilarating white water rafting journey back to our base. Recuperate in a hot water spring and swim in a water fall on the journey back. One night is spent camping in a magnificent cave, the other by the Wampu river.
This trek is ideal for those not looking to do a long trek or expedition, but still wanting to experience some of the highlights of Gunung Leuser National Park. You may be fortunate to spot a wild orangutan in this area or a whole host of other animals indigenous to the region.
This trek brings you back to Bukit Lawang from where you can visit the semi wild orangutans at the Orangutan feeding platform
