Booking and Fees
We offer online booking for our trekking which can be done by clicking on the book now buttons or click here. We ask that guests pay a deposit, especially for the longer treks. Booking is recommended during high season June – September so not to be disappointed and are guaranteed a certified guide. Jungle trekking (Bukit Lawang) prices are based on a minimum of three people, however if you’re an individual you can still book, but if there are not others to join on the day specified you will have to pay for two persons. Prices for other trekking are based on two persons.
Our prices are in line with what the Guide Association has set. (Note: Guests may be offered cheaper prices but be weary as this could mean unlicensed or unexperienced guide)!
National Park Permit and Registration fees
The official entrance for the Gunung Leuser National Park is 150,000 rupiah per trek for foreigners and 20,000 rupiah for Indonesians. On Sundays the price to enter the jungle is 250,000 rupiah p/p. These fees were set across the whole of Indonesia for National Parks. The entrance fee is for entering the park and goes directly to the park authorities.
It is also requested that we register (only 20,000 rupiah p/p) our guests with the HPI Guide Association before trekking. This allows the park authorities to keep track of the number of visitors entering the jungle and protects you if there is an accident or get lost in the jungle.
