My wife and I went to Sumatra to this lodge with the primary objective to see as many Sumatran birds as possible. We were very lucky to get Hari as our expert guide. THIS WAS THE BEST BIRDING GUIDE WE HAD SO FAR IN ALL BIRDING TOURS WE DID IN COSTA RICA, BRAZIL AND MADAGASCAR. THANKS, HARI! We were able to see more than 50 different species in 3 days, for example several different woodpeckers, broadbills, kingfishers, trogons, sunbirds, malkohas, just to name a few. Also the night tour was great with nightjars, frogmouths and owls. We were so enthusiastic that we are planning to come back to Sumatra soon. We did not do any other activity besides birding.
The eco lodge was clean and basic, and compared to other eco lodges we have been to around the globe on the higher end. The food was good and local and freshly prepared by the very friendly local staff. The transfer from Bandar Lampung (which can be reached with Garuda from Jakarta) to the lodge and back took around 3 hours each and was smooth and well-organized by the lodge.
For people who are solely interested in birding we would strongly recommend this spot and this lodge.More
