You will see orangutans in their natural habitat, feeding, making nests, playing with their young or traversing the tree tops. Its also an opportunity to learn more about the orangutan and understand why they are so close to extinction.You will also learn about the local fauna & flora including traditional medicines used by the Sumatran people from your experienced guide. You will be trekking with just your guide, so you decide the pace and stop where you like. If you would like to join others trekking this is also possible – just let us know. Here's what you can expect to see on your Orangutan trek: - Ex-captive orangutans now living in the wild, making daily nests and feeding - Wild Orangutans - White handed Gibbons - Long and short tailed Macaques - Thomas leaf monkey - Hornbills- Asian Pied, Rhinoceros Hornbill - Monitor lizards, Flying Lizard - Green tree frogs - Signs of honey bears - Leopard cat - Amazing plant diversity plus many different tropical insects and birdlife The best part of the trek is that it benefits the Sumatran Orangutans, Elephants and the National Park.
