Protecting Orangutans and the Rainforest: The Importance of Responsible Tourism in Bukit Lawang

Located in the heart of the Gunung Leuser National Park, Bukit Lawang is a paradise for nature lovers and adventure seekers. The region is home to a diverse array of plants and animals, including the critically endangered orangutan. With a focus on responsible and sustainable tourism, we understand the importance of preserving the park's natural beauty and the orangutan population, and work hard to minimize the impact of tourism on the environment.

Eco-tourism has been on the rise in recent years as more and more people become aware of the importance of protecting our planet's natural resources. Bukit Lawang is one destination that has become increasingly popular among eco-tourists.

As a tour & trekking company operating in Bukit Lawang, Orangutan Trekking is committed to protecting the environment and promoting sustainable tourism practices. We believe that eco-tourism is not only important for the conservation of the natural world, but it is also essential for the long-term viability of our business and the local community.

Here are a few ways that Orangutan Trekking is working to protect the environment in Bukit Lawang:

  1. Partnering with local organizations: We work closely with local conservation organizations to ensure that our activities are aligned with their efforts to protect the natural environment.

  2. Adhering to strict environmental guidelines: We follow all local and national regulations related to eco-tourism and work to minimize our impact on the environment.

  3. Educating our customers: We believe that education is a critical component of eco-tourism. We strive to teach our customers about the importance of conservation and the steps they can take to minimize their impact on the environment.

  4. Supporting local communities: We work to support the local community by hiring local guides and using locally-owned businesses. All of our activities are with the local community whether it is our cooking classes, wood carving, and even soap making!
