Welcome to Ecolodge

Welcome to the green heart of the rain forest: The Ecolodge Bukit Lawang Cottages. We warmly invite you to learn more about us, our activities, and our green heartbeat.

Located 80 kilometres from Medan, our Ecolodge is nestled in the rain forest bordering the Gunung Leuser National Park, on the banks of the Bohorok River.

Designed to serve as a model for sustainable livelihoods, running the Ecolodge Bukit Lawang is just one of the activities of PPLH-Bohorok (The Bohorok Environmental Education Centre) run by Yayasan Ekosistem Lestari or YEL; the Foundation for a Sustainable Ecosystem. As a non-profit organisation, all revenues realised by our Ecolodge are put straight back into community development, social programmes and nature conservation. Ecotourism plays a critical role in protecting and enhancing the environment, both for the guests and for the local communities.

We provide you a unique opportunity to enjoy the tropical rain forest, its orang-utans and over 700 other animal species, an enormous wealth of different plant species, jungle treks, including to the bat caves, rafting, our traditional medicine garden, our organic food or just the natural peace and tranquillity of relaxing at the Ecolodge itself.
