Last week, Indonesia entered the festive holiday season. The country with a majority Muslim population granted a collective leave from April 8th to 15th to celebrate Eid al-Fitr.

Eid al-Fitr, also known as Lebaran, is a significant celebration for Muslims where everyone comes together in a joyous atmosphere to seek forgiveness and reconciliation. Going back to hometowns and gathering with family is an integral tradition during Eid. Migrants return to their hometowns temporarily, leaving behind the monotony of city life to relish the rural ambiance they always long for.

What about those who reside in the cities? Typically, they gather with family or visit tourist destinations. For those without a hometown to return to, there’s no need to worry! Our village tour packages allow you to experience the warmth and beauty of rural life. After Eid al-Fitr, we welcome many guests, both local and from across Indonesia. Various activities are available in our tour packages, including jungle trekking and tubing, which are always favorites among guests. Are you planning to celebrate Eid at Ecolodge Bukit Lawang next year? We look forward to your visit!
