“Quality accommodation and excellent guides”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

After spending three very wet, muddy, leech-filled days in Ladeh Panjang we were thrilled to be able to dry off and get clean at Subandi's place. The view from the front window is astounding, with a great view of Mt. Kerinci surrounded by tea plantations. The homestay appeared to have 3-4 rooms, each of which containined at least a double bed and Indonesian-style bathroom (squatty-potty and ladle-shower). Hot water can be boiled for a shower if requested. Our filthy jungle clothes were also washed for a small fee. The food was home-made and tasty, seemingly consisting of ingredients sourced from nearby agricultural communities. This is really THE place to stay for organizing trekking in the northern reaches of Kerinci Seblat national park. Subandi himself is an outstanding guide, and is extremely knowledgeable on the natural history of the park's flora and fauna. His son-in-law is also an excellent naturalist and guide. While trekking and camping in remote sections of the park is much more trying than elsewhere (e.g. Ketambe, Bukit Tapan), it was still a very rewarding experience and the homestay itself was one of our favorites from the entire 3-week trip.
