A thoroughly superb trip which does exactly what it says on the tin. The encounters with Orangs are magical. These animals that you see are rehabilitated so are used to humans and therefore are unafraid to approach you. The truly wild orangs will keep their distance. We also encountered a funky gibbon that was partial to a bit of fruit.
The jungle at Bukit Lawang is hot and steamy, so be prepared, and the optional extra walk is well worth doing as it takes you deeper into the jungle and offers plenty of opportunities to fall over!!!
Two days on board the boat from Flores is a great time to reflect on the passing world before you jump back in the sea to snorkel, recover from lunch or prepare yourself to meet a Komodo Dragon
I fully expected to be overawed by orangs and dragons. However, we were lucky and saw manta rays just below us whilst snorkelling. The first encounter blew my mind.
Evie. brilliant, hard working and SO helpful.
The trip notes hint that Brestagi is cool enough for a warm jumper, but we found that a long sleeve shirt was sufficient. Be aware that Bukit Lawang is hot and steamy, Komodo and Rinca islands in the middle of the day can be like ovens. The two day boat trip is very dependant on currents, so you get to where you're going when you get there.
Be prepared for changes to the internal flight schedules from Medan down to Flores but just go with it and enjoy the experience.
Food in general is cheap, beer varies hugely, from £2 to £4 for a big bottle of Biltang. Spending costs in the trip notes seems to be about right.
Food is cheap in Indonesia and you can generally avoid the spicier dishes if you wish. Western food is available (if you're feeling homesick!) in Medan, Yogyakarta and Bali. Restaurants come in all shapes, colors and standards; expensive (restoran), standard (rumah makan) and simple (warung). Try some of the local rice wine as well, or an ice cold Bintang beer!
