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

Day 1-Within about an hour of entering the jungle, we were watching a family of orang hutans, our guide Acak was quick to spot every bird, monkey, centipede, bear, snake, flower, mushroom, poisonous plant and any other curios alive inside the jungle…. understandably, because this is his stomping ground. Born and raised here in Ketambe, like the other guides at... More

The head guide and owner of the guest houses, Johan was an incredible host. Very helpful. The food was great as long as you understand you are really far away from everything and it takes time to get produce, ie: you have to wait for chicken or fish to be acquired before you can eat it. Bungalows although basic, were... More

We had been recommended Johan's guesthouse and trek by another traveller and this was possibly the best advice we were given for our Sumatra trip. His guesthouse is lovely - the food is fantastic(try the chicken satay) but the real draw of course is the trekking. This is real trekking with lots of wildlife - but you will need to... More
