About us

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.

By staying at the Ecolodge Bukit Lawang or even if you are just dining at the «Kapal Bambu» restaurant, you are contributing to the protection of Sumatra’s tropical rainforest and the conservation of the Sumatran orangutan as well as the countless other species that they share their forest homes with.
