  • Along with with my girlfriend I have a 3-day jungle trek done in Bukit Lawang. All in all it was a very nice experience. Our guide Indra and Chef Daniel/Danny were knowledgeable and friendly, and rooms were fabulous. Expects, however, no adventure tour by a pristine jungle, because you walk in procession through the jungle along orang utans which only half wild and often fed; they are always on or around the same spots. Orang utans spotting guaranteed so, but you'll have no Indiana Jones-feel experience because it feels a little fake. Yet we have enjoyed it, despite the thin mattresses which you do not.
