Bukit Lawang

Orang Utan Sumatera
Bukit Lawang is a small tourist village at the bank of the Bahorok River in Northern Sumatra, Indonesia.
The village of Bukit Lawang provides the main access point into the Gunung Leuser National Park, one of only two remaining natural habitats for the Sumatran orag-utan.
Bukit Lawang is located approximately 80km North West of the city Medan. The easiest and cheapest way to get to Bukit Lawang is by bus from Pinang Baris Bus Station in Medan. Get a taxi to drop you off at the station (which is often just a collection of buses at the side of the road) and ask for the bus to Bukit Lawang. The journey takes approximately three hours and the bus attracts jungle guides seeking to sell jungle trips to tourists/backpackers.
Bukit Lawang is well known for the Bohorok Orang utan Sanctuary. The centre has a successful track record of reintegrating orang-utans into the wilderness. Visitors to Bukit Lawang can take the short walk to the orang-utan feeding platorm, located just inside the National Park, which provides an amazing opportunity to view semi wild orang-utans.
