Tangkahan elephant tour

Tangkahan is a small village located just a 1.5 – 2 hour drive away from Bukit Lawang. This village is famous for its Sumatran Elephants and its beautiful, untouched nature. Tangkahan is home to merely seven elephants (and a few small calves), which were brought there for rehabilitation. It’s a beautiful place to see semi-wild elephants closeby and have the experience of washing/bathing them in the nearby river.

There will be the opportunity to feed and wash the elephants during their two-time daily bathing ritual in the river. Seeing how much these large animals enjoy their bathing time and the brushing will be the highlight of your tour!
When the elephant bathing ritual has come to an end, you can take a short walk to a natural hot spring where you can swim and relax.

In the late afternoon, you will be brought back to Bukit Lawang by selected transport.
