DAY TREKS

These treks are ideal for families, for those of you who have not trekked much before or who are on a tight schedule.
OR perhaps you want a 2 day trek adventure but don't want to sleep in the jungle...if so, then try our Tu-Tu trek.....


1/2 day Taster Trek: Bukit Lawang

This half day trek is ideal if you don't have much time, you have not been into a jungle before or are worried you couldn't last a whole day.

Our trek team will take good care of you and take rest stops as and when needed and you will also have a break after an hour or so and be able to eat some yummy tropical fruit provided by the guide.
