Langkat

Things to do - general

Langkat is a regency located further north of Karo Regency in North Sumatra, so it does not include any shoreline of Lake Toba. However, many tourists visiting Lake Toba also like to see orangutans at Bukit Lawang and elephants at Tangkahan (both located in Langkat and within Gunung Leuser National Park), so we have included Langkat as a destination, too. It is about 5 hours by car from Medan. To see it on the map, click here.

Due to the mountainous terrain of the region, there is no straight road connecting Langkat with Lake Toba. If you stay nearby the lake, you will need to divert toward Medan first then reroute to Langkat. However, the effort is paid off with the exceptional experiences you will get in Langkat. For example, Gunung Leuser National Park is the only tourist place with a wild population of Sumatran orangutans. You won’t get close to these magnificent creatures elsewhere. And as forest turns to farmland across the region, this may be the last chance to see truly wild orangutans enjoying the freedom of the jungle.

Below is the list of the points of interest in Gunung Leuser National Park in Langkat:

Natural sites

  1. 24-Level Waterfall
  2. Bukit Lawang
  3. Frog Stone
  4. Jodoh Semelir Waterfall
  5. Tangkahan

Select Langkat as your travel destination if you wish to visit the above attractions.
