First, we will explore Tangkahan, a perfect place off the beaten path that is often called as the hidden paradise of Sumatra. Although the place is pretty secluded, we will still have an access to delicious food and comfortable bungalows. Tangkahan offers many interesting attractions such as elephants and elephant riding, crystal clear rivers, and the wild vast jungle itself. An eco-tourism based community against illegal logging controls the Tangkahan jungle, improving livelihood and developing a sense of local pride along the way. Bukit Lawang is one of the most popular destinations in Sumatra. It is a convenient destination for nature lovers that are longing to set their foot in Sumatra. You can enjoy the Long tail and Pig tail macaques, Thomas Leaf monkeys, Langurs, Siamangs and of course, the Orangutans. As a haven for around 5,000 orangutans, it is hard to miss them. Besides seeing orangutans, Bukit Lawang also has a long list of outdoor activities.
