Incredible Sumatra Adventure

Duration: 7 Days

Overview

The Gunung-Leuser National Park is a large national park covering 7,927 km² in northern Sumatra, Indonesia. The Nature Reserve is one of the biggest in Indonesia protecting one of the last remaining rainforests on Sumatra. The National Park protects a wide range of ecosystems and is home for the endangered sumatran orangutan as well as for many other endangered animals. UNESCO declared Gunnung Leuser National Park along with two other national parks a world heritage.
The animality counts around 700 different species of animals like the sumatran orangutan, white and black gibbons, elephants, tigers, rhinos, thomas leaf monkeys, long tail and short tail macaques, toucans, moon snakes, lizards, hornbills, saltwater crocodiles, pheasants and numerous exotic bird species which you can find in their last resort in the Gunung Leuser National Park. Within only three centuries, the majority of Sumatra’s rainforests were cleared in favor of palm oil plantations. Gunnung Leuser National Park is one of the last places on earth where orangutans live freely in their natural environment.

Our jungle trekking tours respect and protect the nature and the environment of the  Gunung Leuser National Park and its animals, especially the habitat of the last sumatran orangutans.
