Nature & Wildlife Tours · Caves · Nightlife
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. With the Inspirock world travel planner, Bukit Lawang and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
