After 3 longer visits in Cinta Alam GH in Ketambe I feel the time is right for a comment. Usually I stay here for a couple of weeks and enjoy the stunning view from my bungalow of the rainforest on the western bank of Alas river. A few times I was allready trekking for 2-5 days tours with Johann and... More

Words really can't describe what an amazing time we had with the folks at Wisma Cinta Alam, exploring the beauty of Sumatran nature. I've traveled quite a bit but I've never stayed at a place that felt so much like home, despite being so different from where I grew up, and it all comes down to how warm, kind and... More

Room was ok, food low quality. Jungle trek first sounds good, but at night we "lost" money and camera in the tent. Actually this got stolen during we slept at night or in the morning when we took bath in the river. We were not sure who took this things, but we believe it was organized before. After the trek...

Wisma Cinta Alam is a very nice place to experience the beautiful Leuser National Park. The accommodation is basic, but relatively comfortable. We booked a deluxe room, but were given one directly in front of the restaurant area. Because this was way too noisy and too light, we asked for a room that was far away from the restaurant area....

I stayed here for just over a week with two friends. The trek was absolutely awesome, the lodge owner Johan and his jungle guides are truly amazing and took us on 6day/5night jungle trek!! We saw so many cool jungle creatures and plants - all completely wild, this was not a touristy trek with tamed animals and jungle paths. Challenging... More

We didn't plan on visiting Ketambe, but after a not so great trip through Takengon, we needed a mini bus break. This place was like heaven. We really regretted not being able to stay longer, and personally, I wish we had come here rather than trekking in Bukit Lawang at the beginning of our holiday. We arrived around 10pm and... More

We had a a great experience, doing unfortunately only a 2 days/1 night trek in the jungle with Johan as our schedule was too tight. Never mind, we take it as an introductory and will be back soon for a long one, looking for the tigers!!! The bungalow is sweet, the sunset-sunrise are truly outstanding views, Ketambe, the village is... More

I see that pretty much everything that can be said has already been said. So I just want to add that getting there has become a lot easier since Susi Air is offering flights from both Medan and Banda Aceh to Kutacane. Another point that I think hasn't been mentioned so far - but that I appreciated very much -... More

We found Johan through some websites and decided to do a trekking with him. Johan himself was already booked, but we got another great guide instead: Acah. He was great in spotting orangutans, thomas leaf monkeys and all other kind of interesting things like special plants and insects. In the end we did some trekking with both Johan and Acah... More

This is THE guesthouse to stay at if you are trekking in Gunung Leuser based in Ketambe. A beautiful setting right on the Sungai Alas (Alas River). Which is relevant as many people come here for the river rafting. Many of the guides including head guide Johan have competed at high level international competitions representing Indonesia so they know their... More
