A very laid back area to blend in nature.
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 rain-forest. 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.
