|“ our best journey in North Sumatra Tour”
Together with my girlfriend we spend 15 days with Sumatra Jungle tours. In that time we completed a 6 day / 5 night trek through the jungle, two days of touring Bukit Lawang and surrounding areas, one night stays in both Tangkahan and Brastagi, and 3 nights in Lake Toba.
From airport pickup to drop-off at our hotel in Medan, we had a perfect balance of guided experiences and downtime to explore at our own pace.
The jungle tour was a challenge for us having never experienced tropical heat before, but our guide Kinol and his porter assistants made the experience completely enjoyable throughout. We saw more wildlife than could be reasonably listed here, and concluded that portion of the trip with a river raft ride that took two
The remainder of the trip was made extremely pleasant by the flexibility offered by Omano and his driver. Air-conditioned accomodations, vehicles, and spot-on recommendations for dining all added to the comfort of the experience. Humane elephant interactions and a local volcano guide who collected trash on the descent were among the pleasant surprises that meant our journey was also an ethical one.
I cannot recommend Sumatra Jungle Adventure enough for not only planning excursions from Bukit Lawang, but also wider travels across North Sumatra. The guides know more about the country than solo backpackers could ever hope to discover for the same time and cost.
