As well as our commitment to following the park guidelines we also try to provide an experience which takes you off the usual tourist trail. Many guides and operators take tourists on the same well-trodden routes and some of the camping locations have become very busy with tourists.
We attempt to take our guests to wilder locations, in areas that do not have established camps. We feel that we can offer a more authentic trekking experience by providing only private treks or keeping our groups to less than 7 people. This allows you to feel like you are really getting away from it all and the quieter camps will not scare off the wildlife.
Please see our list of Trekking options below.
The guides will meet you at Jungle Tribe early in the morning. It is best to start trekking early when you have the best opportunity of spotting wildlife. The guides will take you into the forest and around the old feeding platform area to maximize the chances of spotting wildlife. The guide will teach you about the flora and fauna of the jungle and take you to some high points where you can take in spectacular vistas of the rainforest. Fruit and water refreshment will be provided.
$40 USD / 500,000 IDR per person for a minimum of 3 people. Couples or solos will need to pay $120 USD / 1,500,000 IDR in total.

Set off early with the guides into the jungle. Trek around the old feeding platform area to try and spot some semi wild orangutans foraging in their natural habitat. Continue on deeper into the jungle. Stop off regularly for wildlife spotting opportunities and fruit refreshment.

Learn from the guides about the flora and fauna of the National Park and stop off regularly to spot wildlife and take in some refreshment. Enjoy a picnic lunch in the jungle in the early afternoon before heading towards a suitable camping location next to the river. Help out with fishing for dinner or learn some jungle skills from the guides.

We can organise treks of any duration. Please contact us for more information. For solos or those looking to join with others there are some fixed date group tours you can join. A popular option is a 6 day group trek which is run each month by Expedition Jungle Sumatra Tours.
Please see Expedition Jungle for more information and dates. It is also possible for us to sometimes link you up with other people to allow you to reduce costs if you are alone or a couple. Do not hesitate to contact us to see what is available.
For an additional $10 USD/130,000 IDR it is possible to river tube back to the village at the end of the trek or from the final camp. Please note that to take a more remote route it might not be possible to river tube back to the village. The busier camp locations tend to be at the points where it is possible to river tube back to the village.
A full trekking kit list will be provided to you upon booking. For those wishing to travel light, sleeping bags and self-inflating mats can be hired locally for 30,000 IDR per item. It is also possible to hire back packs and dome tents for those looking for some privacy. Otherwise, everyone camps together in the traditional way, which is a tarpaulin attached to a bamboo frame. You have a ground sheet beneath you and are covered to the sides and at the back of the tent. The tent is left open at the front to keep it cool inside the tent.
