Gunung Leuser National Park, Barisan mountain range, Aceh, Indonesia International

Sumatra is the largest island in Indonesia and the sixth largest in the world. The Indian Ocean and the Strait of Malacca envelop this elongated island. Sumatra is diverse and boasts the Bukit Barisan mountains, wild and open plains, lowlands peppered with swamps, lush mangrove forests and multifaceted river systems. Dense tropical rain forests once dominated the landscape, but deforestation has resulted in orangutan inhabited rain forests being only in Sumatra and Borneo. In this journey we traverse the biodiverse landscape of Gunung Leuser National Park. The park houses over 750 species of mammals, amphibians, reptiles and birds, not to mention exciting, otherworldly collections of flora and fauna: which includes the world’s largest and tallest flowers ‘Rafflesia Arnoldi and Amorphophallus Titanum’. There is documentation of scientific identification of over ten thousand varieties of plants in this area.

Many animal species in this outstanding region are critically endangered and include Sumatran rhinoceros, Sumatran elephant, Sumatran tiger and the Sumatran orangutan. Diversity remains within the rainforest, but it needs care and respect to flourish. Guests may also encounter cartloads or tribes of primates including Thomas Leaf monkeys, macaques and gibbons.

Sumatra is famous for its 2 species of Orangutans, however, is also home to 4 species of gibbon, 4 species of macaque, 10 species of leaf monkey and 2 species of slow loris. In and around the area of Bukit Lawang and Langkat region of North Sumatra there are an amazing 9 species of primate.

We are passionate about protecting the diverse eco system of Gunung Leuser and surrounding areas and follow strict rules including absolutely no touching or feeding any of the wildlife, and at all times keeping a minimum distance of 10 meters.
