Bukit Lawang

Trip Planner Asia  /  Indonesia  /  Sumatra  /  North Sumatra  /  Bukit Lawang
Tucked away in Northern Sumatra, the small charming village of Bukit Lawang is best known for its World Heritage-listed Sumatran orangutan sanctuary, and also serves as a convenient base for accessing the surrounding jungle and national park. The extensive orangutan rehabilitation center was initially opened in response to dwindling orangutan numbers caused by deforestation and other factors. A visit to the center tops virtually every Bukit Lawang itinerary, letting you meet this magnificent creature in semi-wild habitats. Round out your trip with some trekking or cycling tours in the nearby national park. Bukit Lawang is in North Sumatra. Start your trip to Indonesia by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
