Right at the start of our thirty day tour through Indonesia, we spent three nights at a lodge in Tangkahan on the edge of the Gunung Leuser national park, not very far from Bohorok. To get to the lodge, we had to cross a river by means of a small ferry and a canoe.
With Tangkahan as our starting point, we made a short tour through the jungle, and Jennie rode on an elephant. From Tangkahan we moved southwards to Lake Toba and Balige, and onwards to the land of the Mandailing Batak.
First we attended a dance performance by a local dance group. Afterwards we were invited to join them! more travel advice
