We recommend this trekking option for guests with an average fitness level as you need to be physically fit for three days hiking up and down the hills.
Special highlight will be two nights in two different peacefull campsites in the jungle.
Compared to our Tour 3, the 2 days/ 1 night jungle trekking, this trek brings you deeper into the rainforest, you will hike more, see more, learn more, and increase your knowledge about sumatras rainforest as well as biodiversity of the Gunung Leuser Ecosystem.
Open your eyes and ears for the magic of the jungle:)
Chances to spot wildlife are higher too!
(gibbons, thomas leaf monkeys, longtail and pigtail macaques, flying squirrels, sumatran peacocks, hornbills and also wild orangutans might cross your way)
Your well experienced guide will explain you many amazing facts about sumatras rainforest and its wildlife. You can also see special and amazing jungle tree formations and tropical plants and learn about their medical use.
