This was 100% the best part of our three month trip around South East Asia (and nothing yet in Australia has beaten it either). We went on the one week tour in March and loved every minute!

We booked the two days jungle trekking + the elephant ride. First of all the accommodation is fantastic. We had the jungle view cottage and the connected Batak cottage. Rooms very nice decorated and clean. Breakfast is each morning a highlight with fresh fruit, juice and different other options. The Jungle trekking was a great experience with our young kids....

We booked the 3 days / 2 nights tour with transfer from the airport in Medan and everything went down perfectly. Our tour guides Adi and Ino had a extremly good knowledge of the animals and the flora&fauna in the jungle. We felt in good hands all the time. We saw lots of orang utans and other interesting animals like... More

This place deserves its wonderful reviews. I highly recommend it because EVERYTHING is well planned, the site is immaculate and gorgeous, the staff is professional and detail oriented and the rooms comfortable and unique. The cottages are on a river bank and breakfast are served in the garden overlooking the river and the jungle. The trek is very difficult it... More

We did the 4 day Hello Jungle tour and it was awesome! The hike was probably the hardest hike I have ever done but it was so worth it. We saw around 8 orangutans, Thomas leaf monkeys and gibbons. The campsite was better than I expected. The meals were great with plenty of food. The guides were awesome, knowledgeable and... More

We were constantly amazed as EVERYTHING far exceeded every expectation. Christina and staff do a fantastic job attending to every detail. Every excursion and transfer was so well planned, we were able to enjoy so much more of what the environment had to offer without being preoccupied travel details. Our trekking guide was absolutely amazing! He went above and beyond... More

I've traveled to six continents and had a lot of great adventures, but trekking through the forest in Bukit Lawang--with orangutans, nosey monkeys, centipedes, succulent local fruit and a serious downpour tops it all. The guides were knowledgeable and fun to be with (albeit slightly condescending to my out-of-shape stepfather). Beware that the "relax in the jungle" tour actually requires... More

We could not stay at EcoTravel as it was fully booked, but Christina & Kembar has kindly helped to book us at another place nearby. They also helped plan and organize the trekking trip, as well as arranging some travel logistics, which included sending a car to 'rescue' us from a nearby village where our car engine broke down on...

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
