Two bedrooms for both culture & nature encounter seekers.
A village house in a nice rural area (5 minutes moped ride up to Bukit Lawang) with bamboo rooms on the second floor; one with king-size bed on the floor and one with bunk bed, mosquito net, western toilet & shower, a kitchen, and an open air balcony facing paddy field and other tropical trees. Best suits for individuals/couples/family/group of three - four looking for both nature & culture encounters.
Start your jungle adventure with Irwan - the house owner, also a 20-year experienced orangutan trekker (licensed), who particularly knows how to handle Mina, a well-known aggressive female orangutan, as he had been involved observing orangutan's behaviour, including Mina's, in an academic research.

Somehow we no longer recommend an elephant ride, as the skeleton of the elephant is not very suited to carrying anything more than its own weight. If it is necessary to ride an elephant, from a health perspective, it is better to sit on the back of the neck.
