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

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.
