What To Bring

Who can go trekking?

Groups with children (Yes), Children of all ages are welcome on all of our tours and trek. Normally for groups with children 10 and under, an extra assistant is brought for each child, or, two or more Guides are assigned for longer treks with children.This is for safety reasons and so that the group can be divided among Guides if people are wanting to go at different paces or if a different route is required for some of the group.

Trek Start Times: Our 3-hour treks can start as late at 1:00 pm, but we generally prefer to start treks in the morning as the animals are generally more active in the morning than in the afternoon. All 1-Day and longer treks normally begin at 08.30 am after you have had your breakfast, but you may start earlier if you wish, to get ahead any other groups that may be trekking.

Rafting / Tubing: It is generally preferable to return to Bukit Lawang from jungle trekking via rafting.  For shorter treks, this means you can trek farther from your starting point.  If you do not wish to retrun by raft, your jungle trek will be more circular and you will not get as far from your starting point. 

We recommendations what prepared for you Jungle trek.  Just Imagination, it,s can rain anytime, and sometime it,s quite heavy.  The trekking trails can be steep and slippery.
