About
Description
BACK TO NATURE - THE HIDDEN PARADISE If you are looking for the most hidden place in Bukit Lawang, in the middle of nature, surrounded by the North Sumatran rainforest and its wildlife inhabitants, our More eco-friendly Back To Nature Guesthouse or Back to Nature Jungle Camp is the perfect place for you! Our friendly staff will pick you up from the village bus terminal or car park, carry your luggage and guide you along the river bank track which was built by the owner himself over a period of several years. We can also provide private car pick-up service from Medan airport or other destinations. Back to Nature is a genuine jungle retreat full of peace and relaxation, inmidst beautiful, lush nature with lots of fresh air. It is a place away from the "hustle and bustle" of the world and all the troubles that come with it. If you are planning a personal time-out from your busy life to calm your mind and nourish your soul, practice meditation or yoga, or you want to enjoy pure nature and wildlife, try jungle trekking or traditional tube rafting, our guesthouse will be the perfect choice for you. Accomodation (total 6): A) In the main building close to the river: 4 double rooms (2 standard rooms / 2 rooms with river/garden view) B) In the garden area, both with a wonderful panorama, lots of privacy, only a few steps above the main building: 1 exclusive bamboo bungalow with a double bed and a big terrace 1 chalet with a veranda and a bedroom on the upper floor Guests staying with us can enjoy a refreshing swim in the river and visit our own nature trail and panorama outlook in our privately owned jungle (120 hectares). The nature trail will be slowly and continously expanded under eco-friendly aspects (following naturally given trails without using big machines or cutting jungle) We can arrange your jungle trekking experience with professional guides to see the orang-utans and more wildlife in Gunung Leuser Nationalpark which is just across the river. In our restaurant we serve tradional indonesian as well as western style food, fresh from the village market every day. Free WIFI in the evening hours. Our continuous mission is to buy even more jungle areal in the future to prevent further deforestation by logging and transformation in plantations. We grow fruit trees for the wild animals to prevent them from going near the crops of the villages. We have planted 1.500 fruit trees so far. YOU CAN HELP and contribute to our mission by staying at Back to Nature Guesthouse! Come to Bukit Lawang and see our breathtaking natural reserves and our precious orang-utans. As long as ecotourism can provide an income for the local people to earn a living and feed their families, they will protect their jungle and the animals that live in it. THANK YOU! Aca and his Back to Nature Guesthouse Team! Less

Please contact the Back to Nature Guest House for an accurate response. I believe it is about a 30 minute walk on flat terrain but they would know for sure!
