Ecolodge Bukit Lawang
North Sumatra, Indonesia
Staying in the Ecolodge Bukit Lawang is not only a unique experience but also a personal statement in support of sustainable tourism and it’s among the only ways you should stay in this corner of the jungle. The Ecolodge gives you access to all the beautiful nature while ensuring visitors limit their impact on the delicate ecosystem and biodiversity while ensuring the survival of the native orangutans.
Bukit Lawang is a peaceful village in the province of North Sumatra and the primary way to access Sumatra’s green heart: the Leuser Ecosystem. Guests can easily book a tour into the lush forests to view wild orangutans. The facility provides an unprecedented opportunity to be immersed in North Sumatra’s unique rainforest environment while directly contributing to the conservation of the critically endangered Sumatran orangutan—proceeds are donated to the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme.
The facility is also just downright gorgeous and surprisingly affordable even for budget travelers since there are a number of accommodation options. Find out more about their programs on the Lodge’s website, and then book directly on a trusted platform like Booking.com to secure a room.
