Visit tangkahan

Remote, tiny village of Tangkahan is a tourist site situated on the edge of the Gunung Leuser National Park, around 20km due north from Bukit Lawang, offering wonderful opportunities for jungle-trekking, river tubing and spotting orang-utan during fruit season. However, Tangkahan has gained its reputation as a place for elephant interaction, with some 10 rehabilitated adult Sumatran elephants kept as part of a post-logging conservation program. While elephant rides are available, they're considered by many animal-welfare groups to be harmful to the animals, so we recommend opting for other activities such as giving them their daily bath. Tangkahan in many ways is the ideal place to visit then get away from the crowds and touristy areas such as Bukit Lawang and Lake Toba, while still being able to explore Indonesia your own way.
