ecolodge bukit lawang

Ecolodge Bukit Lawang – Bukit Lawang is a peaceful village in the province of North Sumatra. The location is a main access point into the green heart of Sumatra: the Leuser Ecosystem. You will have the unique chance to view wild orangutans in a guided tour through the lush forests of the region.

Staying in the Ecolodge Bukit Lawang is not only a unique ex­perience but also a personal statement in support of sustainable tourism.

The facility provides an unprecedented opportunity to be immersed in North Sumatra’s unique rainforest environment while directly contributing to the conservation of the critically endangered Sumatran orangutan – with proceeds donated to the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme.

The Ecolodge Bukit Lawang was established to complement and serve as an outlet for the activities of the Bohorok Envi­ronmental Education Centre. Herein we aim to increase awareness towards biodiversity conservation and the implementation and management of proper ecotourism.

Ecolodge Bukit Lawang

The Ecolodge Bukit Lawang was established initially to support the activities of the Bohorok Environmental Education Centre (PPLH Bohorok) managed by YEL, the Sustainable Ecosystems Foundation (Yayasan Ekosistem Lestari).

The main objective of Ecolodge Bukit Lawang is to promote eco-tourism in the region.

We achieve this by disseminating information about environmental conservation and through ecological-friendly management. Sustainable activities and practices are promoted both to visitors and staying guests, with at the heart of our work on deep-seated concern for the protection and continued conservation of the Leuser Ecosystem – the last stronghold of the critically endangered Sumatran orangutan.

Enjoying with us makes you feel good at heart
All profits generated by the Ecolodge Bukit Lawang are re-invested into the conservation of the Sumatran orangutan and its rainforest habitat, environmental education and community development programmes, under the management of YEL.
