I booked a package in advance. The pick up from the airport and the transportation to Bukit Lawang went smooth. Unfortunately, I didn't stay at the EcoTravel Cottage the first night, instead they book me a room at their partners "Riverside Guesthouse". The jungle trek was amazing, not only because the jungle with its gigantic variety of wildlife is just... More

We didn't get to stay at the Eco-Lodge but we did do the Jungle Trek with them. They were great - Addi was a superb guide, knowledgeable and fun. The actual trek was hard work - much tougher than expected but very rewarding. This was the highlight of our trip to Northern Sumatra... If you are thinking about going skip... More

Probably the best place to stay in Bukit Lawang. Great Food, nice people, clean and pretty rooms. Offering nice packages around town. We did the jungle trek, white water rafting as well several others. Only thing I didnt like was the trip to the elephant riding location. Three hours through ugly palm oil plantations. Shows the tourists though what happens... More

One day we spend just relaxing in our hammock, listening to the... More

This was one of the most amazing weeks of our lives. Firstly we were picked up by a driver in Medan who drove us to the Eco cottages in Bukit Lawang, which was a beautiful European style building overlooking the river. The rooms had large memory foam beds, and all the staff were incredibly welcoming and were able to answer... More

From the first contact via email to every detail during our stay the level of service exceeded expectations. We have 2 young children aged 8 and 7 and the... More

Excellent organization from the first mail contact to the last transport to Lake Toba. The room we had in EcoTravel Cottages was beautiful, spacious and clean. We were welcomed by friendly staff and our guide for the next days jungle trek Adi who explained everything. The trek itself was challenging but a fantastic adventure. Special Thanks to Adi, who is... More
