Bukit Lawang is a village located about 90 kilometres Northwest of Medan at the capital city of North Sumatra, Indonesia. To be precise, the location of this village is at the entrance of the Gunung Leuser National Park. A gateway to the Sumatran Jungle, Bukit Lawang is famous for spotting semi-wild orangutans quite frequently. The rainforest around the village is known to be a vibrant and diverse tropical forest ecosystem which homes orangutans, leopards, baboons, macaque, and Thomas leaf monkeys.
The location of Bukit Lawang is best for travellers who want to immerse in the jungle's green wilderness. It is a little challenging to draw the line between the forest and the village as one can find monkeys running across house roofs and cicadas droning at night. It is the perfect destination for a peaceful and laid back vacation with some sunshine in the morning and heavy rains in the latter part of the day.
