Sumatra Orangutan Explore is an ethical trekking agency & guesthouse launched in 2018. Located in the small riverside village of Bukit Lawang is located at the entrance of the Gunung Leuser National Park, one of the richest tropical rainforests in South East Asia! The perfect place to stay to discover the amazing Sumatran rainforest and its unique, endemic wildlife. It is one of the 2 only places in the world where we can still spot orangutans in the wild.

Our treks strive to respect and preserve the unique ecosystem & biodiversity of the Gunung Leuser National and especially protect the endangered Sumatran Orangutans. Our eco-friendly day tours and activities aim to support local people & traditional activities in the surroundings of Bukit Lawang and more secluded areas.
 
The love of nature, respect, sustainability and mutual aid are deeply rooted in Sumatra Orangutan Explore’s values. We are devoted to have a low impact on the rainforest but a great impact on the local community of Bukit Lawang!
 
Our mission is to shape a better future for our amazing but endangered Sumatran rainforest, its exceptional biodiversity and its inhabitants!
