Bukit Lawang is a small tourist village at the bank of the Bahorok River in Northern Sumatra, Indonesia.
The village of Bukit Lawang provides the main access point into the Gunung Leuser National Park, one of only two remaining natural habitats for the Sumatran orag-utan.
Bukit Lawang is located approximately 80km North West of the city Medan. The easiest and cheapest way to get to Bukit Lawang is by bus from Pinang Baris Bus Station in Medan. Get a taxi to drop you off at the station (which is often just a collection of buses at the side of the road) and ask for the bus to Bukit Lawang. The journey takes approximately three hours and the bus attracts jungle guides seeking to sell jungle trips to tourists/backpackers.
Bukit Lawang is well known for the Bohorok Orang utan Sanctuary. The centre has a successful track record of reintegrating orang-utans into the wilderness. Visitors to Bukit Lawang can take the short walk to the orang-utan feeding platorm, located just inside the National Park, which provides an amazing opportunity to view semi wild orang-utans.

About

Orangutan Expedition tours offers you the once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the indigenous wildlife of the North Sumatran rainforest.
Gunung Leuser National Park is one of only a few places left in the world, from where you can still see the Sumatran orangutan in the wild as well as a whole host of other wildlife. Gibbons, Elephants, Hornbills, Thomas Leaf monkeys, Macaques and the Sumatran Tiger are just a handful of the thousand animal and plant species unique to this ecosystem.
We are a Sumatran based organization seeking to create an example of high standard sustainable tourism within this area. Responsible tourism offers the opportunity to aid the conservation of the environment whilst improving the welfare of local people. Our goal is to provide a high quality of experience for the visitor and maintain the quality of the environment of which both our community and the visitors depend.
We create tailor made expeditions and treks to suit everyone from the most adventurous explorer to those wishing for a more gentle introduction to the jungle. Ideal for singles and small groups, budget backpackers or those looking for more luxury. We can cater to the traveller already on the road or those looking for a custom made holiday adventure.
Choose from our many tours and expeditions to design your own itinerary. Our highly experienced guides can take you on a trek, from just a few hours or for as long as two weeks. We also organise experiences of the jungle from different perspectives; take an off road trip to visit the Elephants of Tangakhan or enjoy exhilarating white water rafting on the Wampu river.
If trekking isn’t your thing we can organise for you to visit the Orangutan feeding platform in Bukit Lawang. Choose a more relaxed itinerary with overland visits to Berastagi or the stunning Lake Toba.
All tour durations are flexible according to your schedule and budget. We can advise on flights, arrange airport transfers and accommodation for the duration of your stay.
