365Indonesia Day 17 – Orangutan in Bukit Lawang, North Sumatra

Hello guys!

This adorable creature is Orangutan named Mina and her child, lives in Bukit Lawang, North Sumatera.

Yes, I’m going back to North Sumatra.

Bukit Lawang is located in North Sumatra, close to Aceh, at the edge of Gunung Leuser National Park. Here is where a lot of Sumatran Orangutans still alive. This is mainly thanks to the rehabilitation center in Bukit Lawang.

You can visit the Orangutans feeding, which takes place twice daily in Bukit Lawang. Not only ca you visit the Orangutans, you can also do kayaking and rafting by the day in here provided by local people. Please contact the tour guides if you want to do that. At night, you can have a party in various guesthouses featuring guitar-playing guides. Yes, there are many guesthouses in Bukit Lawang so you can stay as long as you want. If you come here on Sunday, it is wise to arrange a visit somewhere quieter, such as trekking or going to the Landak River. Accommodation prices may vary slightly by season, generally ranging from $5-$30.

How to get there from Medan? It’s easy. You can take taxi direct from Medan or airport to Bukit Lawang with cost about $30.
