After you finish trekking and if you stay little bit longer in Bukit Lawang and want to do something creative and special we suggest you join one of our local arts, painting & handicraft workshops. You can learn wood carving, coconut shell carving (necklace or bracelet), painting (t-shirt, canvas) or you can do mural /street art with our partner community. It is a nice opportunity to get to know local arts. You will love it and always remember Bukit Lawang.
