Plan on visiting the Orang Utan Rehabilitation centre at Bukit Lawang, a 2 hour drive from Medan. The centre opened in the early 70's and many orang utans have been rehabilitated and set free in the jungle since then. There were many guest houses along the side of the river but all were destroyed in 2003 by a flash flood due to illegal logging. Many people lost their lives but the community was rebuilt in the following years (6yrs, i am informed) The place is functioning normally again and you can see the Orang Utans being fed at the rangers station 8 am and 3 pm, but it is 20,000 entrance + 50,000 for your camera.

The Orangutan Feeding Centre at Bukit Lawant has been open for nearly 40 years. While it is no longer used as a rehabilitation centre, it is still used to feed semi-wild orangutans. Twice a day park officers provide bananas and milk to supplement the food available in the jungle. Best time of day to see the orangutans is usually the morning session, particularly at time of the year when food is plentiful in the jungle.
Getting across to the centre is fun, particular when the river is high. A small fee is payable to enter the centre.

I have travel to PARAPAT from MEDAN by land transportation, after few hours drive through a steeping green hill, our mini van taxi stop at one of many coffee shops which stranded at the edge of the height of Simalungun, where the passengers have a chance to take a coffee break and enjoy a picturesQue panorama of Lake Toba. It was a really fascinating view from where you can see a blue water of the lake, a mountain range which confined a huge water basin of Lake Toba and a cup of coffee or tea will refreshen the next journey through a long and winding roads..... so don't miss it if you travel from Medan to Prapat or Tarutung or Sibolga vise versa

Medan is the gateway of Northern Sumatra.
Whether coming from Polonia airport from Penang or Jakarta, by boat through Belawan port or by overland bus, Medan has accommodations of different price range for the travellers.
There are a few sight seeing places like a palace and shopping centers to stock up for your more adventurous travels of interior Sumatra.
Most of the town shopowners are Indonesian of Chinese descents, so you speak to the elderly people in Hokkien dialect or Mandarin.
