ELEPHANT Tangkahan


Things to do and see around North Sumatra tourism highlight – interesting places holiday destination

A very laid back place to blend in nature.


Tangkahan is a lovely tiny rural remote paradise area located in the border of Gunung Leuser National Park. It takes around 4 hours drive from Medan downtown or 5 hours from Medan Kuala Namu international airport to reach Tangkahan and 2.5 hours driver from Bukit Lawang driving on a bumpy adventure road through Palm oil plantations and rural villages.




Tangkahan tourism is very well-known with its Elephant rehabilitation sanctuary,  jungle trekking and also river tubing as it is located along the Kuala Buluh river next to the thick dense rainforest. Therefore this makes Tangkahan as a perfect place to lay back in rural areas around Sumatra especially grabbing your chance to spend some time to interact with Elephants and calves; like washing the elephants in the river and riding elephant to explore the jungle environment with dedicated mahouts.
