Experience the unspoiled wonder of Tangkahan, where you can swim in the clear Buluh River, let a waterfall pour over you and ride an elephant along jungle trails. But hurry before too many other people find this still-hidden tropical paradise.
What to Expect
Visit Sumatra’s “hidden paradise” and experience the pristine jungle environment of Tangkahan.
After you arrive in Medan, you have the opportunity to tour the city or explore the tropical garden setting of your Deli River Hotel, just outside town.
The following day you head to Tangkagan, about a 5-hour drive. If you arrive early enough, you can visit the elephant camp. Either way, the Black Tiger Lodge where you will be staying commands breathtaking views of the jungle.
You will have another full day in this jungle paradise, doing what you want to do. Swim in the unspoiled Buluh River, sit on a secluded beach surrounded by butterflies, and let a jungle waterfall pour over you. Nearby is an amazing spot where the waters of a hot spring join the river, offering a unique natural experience.
You also can ride an elephant along jungle trails for an hour, and watch elephants taking a bath in the river – and maybe even lend a hand. Whatever you choose to do, at the end of the day you’ll be able to relax and enjoy another incredible night amid nature in a tropical rainforest.
