Hiking forests with elephants in North Sumatra

Located on the edge of Gunung Leuser National Park, Tangkahan offers elephant trekking and hiking to visitors as part of an eco-tourism campaign to preserve the local forests. When they aren’t giving rides to tourists, the elephants patrol the park with rangers to prevent illegal logging.
