Available Anytime!

 

Experience the hidden paradise of North Sumatra, Tangkahan.You will arrive in Tangkahan village, where you are greeted by the smiling faces of the Karonese people; well-known for chewing betel nut, their regal dancing, and elaborate marriage ceremonies. Soon after arrival, you become acquainted with the Gunung Leuser National Park, part of the incredible Leuser Ecosystem. Settle into your accommodation, explore the beautiful Buluh River and enjoy a delicious picnic lunch.

Day two is all about Sumatran elephants. You will participate in the Conservation Response Unit (CRU) elephant walk program into the Leuser Ecosystem. Raw strongly believes that supporting this local elephant program to develop natural and non-abusive tourist activities, will help the local community transition away from offering elephant riding as an income source. This walk is amazing! You will visit the forest and watch the elephants display natural behaviours as they forage and explore their surroundings. These elephants are in captivity due to human elephant conflict and are helping to monitor the forest around Tangkahan, keeping wild elephants from crop raiding. Sumatran elephants are critically endangered and this is your opportunity to participate in an ethical elephant experience. Following your elephant encounter you will tube down the Batang River visiting waterfalls, swimming, and picnicking in this glorious landscape.

Your final morning is spent in the rainforest as you are guided on a two hour trek. Keep your eyes open for orangutans, gibbons, hornbills, reptiles and a huge array of wildlife in this spectacular rainforest, which you won’t want to leave!

Tangkahan is one of Raw Wildlife Encounter’s favourite destinations, helping the local community develop sustainable income via alternative employment. A great optional add on to any of your adventures in North Sumatra, and for those who want to connect with nature, in a location that is traditional and vibrant. Tangkahan is the perfect location to explore, relax and connect with the local people.
