Trekking Gunung Leuser National Park is considered to be a complete experience of jungle trekking Sumatra. You will be trekking in a well-preserved jungle of Leuser National Park. The area is the habitat of most endangered animals such as Sumatran Tiger, Elephant, Rhino, and Orangutan, and any other wildlife such as Thomas Leaf Monkey, black gibbon or siamang, and white-handed gibbon. In this program, we may possibly encounter the orangutan mostly.

While plenty of Thomas leaf monkeys and white-handed gibbon are visible everywhere in the jungle during trekking Gunung Leuser national park, the orangutan is still the main highlight of this program. The variety of flora in this lush green tropical rainforest will give you valuable experience of living in the wild, and the local people’s way of life surviving in the jungle is worth exploring and learning.

Mount Leuser National Park is located around 90 km northwest of Medan. UNESCO lists the national park as the main conservatory place for orangutans as well as other Sumatran species, which can safely be described as paramount ecosystem keeper and makes the life cycle sustainable. The area covers more than 7,900 km2 of the forest and has become one of the infamous spots in the world where you can see the primates in wildlife.

Best Season

It’s also best to avoid the rainy season when you want to have a jungle adventure, which is from October to March – you can expect rain at least once daily, and the intensity is higher than in other months. In general, Mount Leuser National Park is always humid, consists of a mountainous landscape, and has more than 1,500 m of elevation.
