Retreat in the rainforest!

You will experience the best North Sumatra has to offer without the worry of excess physical exertion! The best thing about this adventure program, it is tailored to meet your needs.

Start your tour in Tangkahan. Tangkahan is often called the hidden paradise of Sumatra and you will immediately see why. Step out of your privately driven vehicle into a tropical oasis of green. Tangkahan is a community on the edge of the magnificent Gunung Leuser National Park – part of a UNESCO world heritage site where incredible wildlife is at your doorstep. 

Over the next few days, our guides will introduce you to the wonders of the jungle where you may be lucky enough to hear the enchanting call of gibbons or see hornbills flying overhead. Relax and river tube down to spectacular waterfalls, meet the orphan elephants and participate on a small trek into the rainforest to witness the 'man of the forest', Sumatran orangutan.
