About this event

This challenge takes place in the mountainous Gunung Leuser National Park, one of the only places in the world where you can still see Sumatran orangutans in the wild.

Gibbons, elephants, hornbills, Thomas leaf monkeys, macaques, sun bears and the elusive Sumatran tiger are just a handful of the many species found in this unique World Heritage ecosystem.
