We had a 4 night tailored trip (2 night jungle and elephant trip) and cannot describe how much we enjoed it. Everything was organised to perfection and the stuff was knowlegdable and very friendly. Everyone got out of their way to make our trip an unforgetable experience. Staying at their lodge was also amazing, almost feeling like one with nature.

From everything we have seen in Indonesia, the Jungle Trekking with Adi & his team was the BEST! Everything was very good planned. We felt totally save during the trekking even when you thought sometimes "how am I ever going UP there??" We haven't seen any Orang-utans on the eating-plattform, so Adi & his guys where really caring to find... More

I have completely fallen in love with the island of Sumatra and its people who may be the friendliest on earth & we will definitely return, for a longer time. The standout experience for us was our time in... More

We did the orangutan and elephant trip with Sumatra ecotravel and really enjoyed the experience. All the guides were really good but Darma, our guide for the orangutan trip/jungle trek, made it for us. He was really friendly, knowledgeable and very passionate about the importance of ecotravel in Sumatra to preserve the rainforest. Everything was very well organised and it... More

Since we were short on time, we booked everything in advance with eco travel. Everything was just about perfect and the eco travel lodge in Bukit Lawang is extrordinary.
