  • A spectacular tour! We went on the day from Bukkit Lawang (3 hour's drive along a road of madness) but the experience makes it worthwhile! 100% recommended

  • I went to Tangkahan twice this year, and all the experiences I had, kept me coming to this site again and again. Washing the elephants are one of it. Surrounded by the nature, you've got all the chanc...  more »
  • We have booked the washing directly at "bukit lawang jungle trekking" about Janine and were accompanied by Sardi as a guide. We arrived after 2 hours of bumpy roads, a snack and a halt to a great vantage point. Sardi's is so great, and we have talk nice with him. We had lunch and a hot spring. The source is now not spectacular but you can just keep the foot ;-) you should there also not in bikini jump around because the locals in their bathing clothes. We have not bathed but blabbing with Sardi until los was :) then that ride you can really save - to ride 4minuten in the District of ;-) people go to super good with animals, there's a group with 1 male (Theo), 6 girls and 3 babies there. I think that speaks for itself. The elephant boy, that means you're getting good. I pay attention to animal welfare in such activities and here I have a good feeling! I would never support something where the animals have to suffer and live eg on the chain! You look good, the guides are super to the animals and taught them the trunk to lift, so that we could directly pitch feed. In addition, they can give an elephant shower and Kiss ;-) First are the animals with the guides in the water and have obviously enjoyed it. Correctly dropped, and showed they are :) Then we were allowed to do so and have scrubbed, petted and were down and away :) the baby was totally naughty and very hungry ;-) so watch the big get even a few bananas :D We will never forget the day!
