LEUSER JUNGLE MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK

Leuser Jungle is in the heart of Bukit Lawang village, overlooking the Bohorok river with amazing views of the rainforest, easy access to Gunung Leuser National Park (GLNP) and only 10 minutes from the orangutan feeding platform. Whatever you want to do Leuser Jungle is the perfect base for you.


Trek in wild tropical rainforest and search for endangered wildlife.
Learn traditional jungle survival skills.
Take a guided walk and explore local culture.
Focus on birdspotting or wildlife photography.


Because of the unique backgrounds and experience of the Leuser Jungle team we can help you experience the wildlife and culture in a way that’s not possible with the conventional travel companies. Whether you are an independent traveller, a group of friends or you are planning a unique holiday for a special occasion (honeymoon, wedding anniversary, birthday gift etc), we can help you organise a trip that’s right for you and your budget. We also specialise in family orientated activities where the whole family can learn about and experience the wonder of the forest together.


As an area of outstanding natural beauty and exceptional levels of biodiversity, the tropical rainforests of GLNP have been designated a world heritage site by UNESCO.


 The forest habitat is very important for conservation and if you are lucky you could see the tallest flower in the world Amorphphophalus titanium, the smelliest flower in the world Rafflesia arnoldii, the remarkable Great argus pheasant, the Thomas leaf monkey (only found in North Sumatra) and, of course, the critically endangered Sumatran orangutan and Sumatran tiger.


Join us at Leuser Jungle and have the trip of a lifetime Without having to spend your life savings!

Firstly, you need to get to Sumatra and it is quite easy. The best airports to fly into are Kuala Lumpur, Singapore or Jakarta. From either of those three it is then a short flight over to Polonia International airport in Medan, North Sumatra. Some airlines and travel agents, such as Malaysia, will book you tickets for your entire journey but another and perhaps cheaper option is to arrange your flight to Medan yourself. Air Asia flights can be booked online and are pretty cheap.NB Air Asia are now doing international flights from London Stanstead to Kuala LumpurOnce you are in Medan you then need to get to Bukit Lawang and there are a number of options which vary in terms of cost, comfort and adventure!We can arrange private transport and meet you at the airport or your hotel. Much the easiest, straightforward and comfortable option. (approx £50 return)We can meet you at the airport / hotel and travel back with you to Bukit Lawang on public transport. (approx £20 but may vary depending of time of day).You can make your own way to Bukit Lawang on public transport. We will provide you with a detailed set of instructions (which do include the location of a secret lovely clean toilet very close to the bus stop in Medan!)Medan is a busy, hectic city and can be a bit overwhelming if you’re not used to Asian citys. If you need to spend any time overnight there we can recommend a variety of hotels and places to eat and shop. There are western style shopping malls with outlets such as Quiksilver,& Mango so you could pick up some bargains.Drop us an email and we will advise you on the best options to fit your schedule.
