We had a great time with Idam and Gilang. They are very good guides and showed us plenty of places where we could find Orang-Utans while being respectful to the apes (they don't feed them). They also showed us other animals like macaques, spiders and...More

It was indeed an impromptu plan with my friend. We went to Bukit Lawang by public bus from Pinang Baris which only cost us for Rp 20,000 per person. The road to Bukit Lawang wasn't that well-maintained but it's worth the journey. Our stay at...More

The guides were nice and fun and could tell many things about the forests and animals inside the jungle. The pro argument for Bob's tour is, that he takes care of the rain forest and uses the money to sustain the environment and wildlife. Thats...More

3日のトレッキングコースを選びました。 朝9〜10時出発、ジャングルの中をフルーツ休憩、ランチ休憩を挟みつつトレッキング、夕方までには川沿いのテント到着、最終日はランチ後1時間弱のラフティングで帰るという内容です。 オランウータンや、色々な猿や、オオトカゲ、日本の動物園では見たことない孔雀、猪、等々、様々な動物達と出会えました。 猿は何種類かいて、スマトラ島でしか生息していないファンキーモンキーと呼ばれる猿もいます。 オランウータンは基本とても穏やかです、が、 あまり近づきすぎると手ごとiPhoneを叩き落とされるので注意してください。 私が叩かれるのを見て他の旅行客がオランウータンから離れるようになりました。笑 ガイドさんはとても親切です。 私は英語が上手く話せないのですが、ガイドさん達はわかりやすい単語で丁寧に説明してくれます。 私の夫が元々の怪我のせいなのか、食べ物か水が合わなかったのか、体調を崩してしまったのですが、ガイドさんは優しくて、私達のペースに合わせて歩くことができました。 ジャングルは天気が変わりやすく、インドネシア全体では乾季の7月なのにとてつもない土砂降りにあいました。 でもぬかるみを慎重に歩けばむしろ楽しめます。 最終日のラフティングなんか最高です。 完全なる山道のトレッキングに慣れてない方には2日コースがおすすめです。 しっかりと心と体の準備を整えてから3日コースは選びましょう。 I went trekking for 3days. I could meet many animals (orangutans, monkeys, giant lizards, birds, peacock, pig, etc... ) Orangutans are mostly very calm. But If you get too close...More
