Have done many treks all around Asia...this is one of the best! The guide boys were excellent. They were friendly, polite and very helpful. Pickup and drop back in Medan was very good. The forest is very dense and well kept. We saw a few Orangutans and funky monkeys. Fruit lunch was cool. The trek took 3.5hours. We finished the final part by water rafting. Overall: Excellent day trek; highly recommended.
The tour started off badly as they...

The tour started off badly as they sent somebody who I thought was our guide/driver who did not speak English. We were on our way back to our hotel because it was impossible to spend a day and to go trekking with somebody who did not speak English. However, in the nick of time, the Agency explained that the person driving was not our guide but just he driver to Bukit Lawang, where we would meet our guide who did speak English. The drive to Bukit Lawang is around 5 hours, with the last two hours spent driving through palm oil trees on a small road, which means that the going is slow as they are quite a few trucks transporting the palm oil fruit to the processing facilities. We arrived at Bukit Lawang at around 11:30 hours, where we met Ucock, our guide and almost immediately started our trek. to the Gunung Leusr National Park. Ucock is a perfectly amiable person and very knowledgeable. He was assisted by Balu, who was unfortunately bitten by a leech during lunch! During our trek, we saw 6 orang-utans, countless Thomas Leak monkeys , and a family of cheeky monkeys. THis was a good day out, especially because we managed to see some orang-utans.

Ein Fahrer hat uns sicher, schnell und äußerst freundlich von Medan nach Buki Lawang gebracht. Der Guide vor Ort war leider nicht kompetent, gab keinerlei Informationen und brachte uns mit 5 Raucherpausen im Dschungel (er rauchte, wir sind Nichtraucher) und kurzer Runde zurück zum Dorf mit der Bemerkung, dass wir alt und nicht in der Lage wären, weiter bis zum Fluss zu gehen. Der Weg dorthin wäre für uns alte Leute (sportlich, aber 63 und 65 J.) zu beschwerlich. Eine Wahl hat er uns nicht gelassen. Wir haben daher nur die Halbwilden Orang Utans Nähe dem Dorf sowie einen Weisshandgibbon und die Thomas Languren gesehen. Ob diese mehrstündige Anreise ein Erfolg wird, hängt vom Guide ab.
