We took our flight on Friday morning, arrived at Medan around 10am. We were welcomed by our driver and drove for 3h30 to reach Bukit Lawang. There we met our guide for the first part of the trip. we started our trekking around 1.30/2pm. around 3pm we stopped for a lunch (nasi goreng and fruits), then we continued to walk for around 1h30. On the way we had the chance to see some orang-outans 😀. Very close !
We reached the camp (near to the river) around 5pm. We had tea and coffee with some biscuits very nice ! Then resting, shower in the river and chatting.
Diner by the first, chicken curry, noodles, rice. Very good ! Sleeping in the tent with a small yoga mat. A bit hard I must say !
Waking up with the nature and the long tail monkeys ! 🐒 Breakfast and then packing for the trek. We walked around 2h30/in a morning, we also had the chance to see some orang-outans on the way.
Lunch by a nice river and waterfall.
Back to the trekking, for around 2h30, we reach a summit and enjoyed a nice view over the jungle !
Around 4pm we reach the second camp site.
Rafting to go back to Bukit Lawang ! Nice and smooth after the effort comes confort ! 🚣♀️
Arrived around 5pm at the guesthouse. Relax time. However the guesthouse we had wasnt great, bed broken which ended rolling at each other ….
Wisma Batu Mandi: poor service, bed broken, no toilet paper and far from the bar/restaurant of the ecolodge. 🙁
Woke up a 8h30, breakfast and getting ready for the travel back to the airport. Left Medan at 4pm.
