In The Thick of The Jungle at Tangkahan Village


In The Thick of The Jungle at Tangkahan Village
Often referred to as the hidden paradise of Sumatra, Tangkahan’s lush jungle and topography makes it a marvelous tourist spot that remains largely undiscovered. This village in the incredible Gunung Leuser National Park is located on the junction of two rivers, Batang Serangan and Buluh. The park is one of the world’s most biologically diverse conservation areas, home to some of the planet’s most endangered species.

Effected in the past by logging and poachers, today this reserve has been transformed as an eco-reserve. The local people have acted to turn their situation around and conserve their precious surrounds. Come and meet the elephants who together with the rangers, patrol the forest to keep illegal loggers and poachers out.
Here the clear, bluish green rivers set against the panoramic view of the Sumatran jungle creates a truly mystical atmosphere. Come and discover this hidden jungle paradise and you won’t regret it.
