Sumatra EcoVentures: Who Are We

Sumatra EcoVentures is an eco-friendly organisation with a combined 15 years experience in wildlife conservation, guiding and trekking. We offer unique adventures exploring North Sumatra's wildlife and culture.

 

We are dedicated to quality ethical treks and tours.

We love nature and care for the planet. We worry how travelers impact the environment in North Sumatra.  Our trips and programs reduce the impact on the environment through community-based tourism. We believe that ecotourism is a great way to raise awareness and 

 educate visitors the importance of sustainability and preserving the environment.

Our Core Value: Respect Nature & Preserve Local Culture and Traditions

Eco - Treks

Treking near Landak River, located just 4km from Bukit Lawang. The hidden forests sit beside the river and overlook the Leuser National Park. Scarce of tourists, peaceful and diverse. Eco-Trekking here is a real experience. A great place to explore.

Live the Adventure

There are several villages bordering the Leuser National Park that should be explored, each offering something different. Elephants & waterfalls at Tangkahan or the famous Rafflesia  flower and Gibbons at Batu Katak or amazing waterfalls near Pamah Semilir

Our unique eco-travel treks and tours offer a wide range of trips all around North Sumatra to experience local communities, nature and wildlife in an authentic and meaningful way.

 

These all include elements of adventure, learning, cultural immersion and sustainability, so it is more than being a careless tourist.
