From the hectic city life to the deep jungle of Bukit Lawang in Sumatra visiting the Orangutan. Bukit Lawang is well known for Jungle Treks but there isn't a super modern infrastructure and plenty of luxury hotels. Nevertheless it is worth a visit to experience the nature and get on an exciting adventure!

Some impressions on Instagramp>

The orange giant, the Orangutan, is only found on two islands world wide, on Sumatra and Borneo. Because of agriculture in general and specific palm oil monocultures their space to live shrinks from year to year. Not only the Orangutan is suffering from shrinking forests he can lives in also lots of other animals are missing the rain forest to live in. The deforestation happens because of the space which is used to plant palm oil palm trees in huge monocultures.

In this documentation we decided to travel to Bukit Lawang in Sumatra, hire a guide and explore the Jungle which is left. A couple of days far away from civilization and human impact. It was an amazing adventure and we have been surprised by the diversity and beauty of the flora and fauna in this Tropical Tainforest.

Disclaimer: Palm oil is not bad in general. It is a very efficient type of oil, probably the most efficient when it come to input and output ratio. We consume lots of oil in several products and that is a fact and hard to change because there is no substitute ingredient nowadays. Palm oil is not the only reason for deforestation. The meat industry, because of cattle farming, causes most of the deforestation worldwide. (this is no scientific report, this is my own perspective on this case.)
