Indonesia | Bukit lawang

Recommended 2D2N

Chance a meeting with our very large, very hairy, very ginger cousins: the orangutan.  In Bahasa Indonesia, ‘orang’ means man and ‘hutan' means forest.  Sumatra is one of two places that orangutans still live wild and free.  Bukit Lawang sits on the edge of Gunung Leuser National Park, home to different species of birds and large mammals
