Trekking through the jungle, North Sumatra

North Sumatra, home to some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world.

The Gunung Leuser National Park is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the last places where you can see the critically endangered Sumatran orangutan in the wild.

I entered the National Park through the village of Bukit Lawang and it was on the drive up that the questions began. Passing through an endless palm oil plantation, it’s an uneasy feeling when you see ‘London Sumatra Palm Oil Factory’ engraved on the side of the factory.
