Indonesia, Sumatra - Short & Sweet

... would be with us for the next 3 days. Before starting the trek, we went to 'the feeding station' where some orang-utans stop by. These orang-utans are called semi-wild as they live in the wild, but sometimes obtain food from humans. We were very lucky as there was a mother and baby who just dropped in once we arrived. Swinging down from the trees above, the mother with the baby attached to her front stood right on the walking path. There I was standing directly in front of them ...

... feed her enough. Also, we crossed a few black gibbons swinging in the trees. It's funny to see how fast and good they are at it. The day after I came back from the jungle trek, I went to Tangkahan, where is an elephant center. I went with one of the locals by scooter. The ride took us 2 hours to go and 2 to come back.

So it's been a fun start to cycling in Indonesia but on the plus side I'm always ...

Jungle trek

A travel blog entry by terryandlauren


... some lunch before organising our permits to see the daily orangutans feeding session. It takes a little while to locate the permit office and then to find someone to write our permits, but one typewriter later we're walking 2km up the river toward the national park entrance. We arrive early and are pulley'd across the river in a small boat, we wait for about 20 mins and we are entertained by many long tailed macaques or cheeky monkeys as the locals call them ...
