Sumatra Expedition Lodge

Our family-founded ethical guesthouse is the perfect gateway to both the jungle, and an authentic exploration into Sumatran village life. Featuring a large vegetable plot and working buffalo Betty, we try to blend our traditional farming heritage with the technologies of today (WIFI, western toilets and showers) to offer you the most authentic, yet comfortable Sumatran experience. Expect to pick your lunch or dinner ingredients from our veg plot, or even take a chance at catching your own fish supper from our two fish ponds, all the while enjoying the incredible vistas of the mountainous jungle, and live volcano, Sinabung. Our rooms range from 150.000-450.000IDR (€10-30) per night, in order to accommodate all budgets, and walks of life. If you're eager to explore the Sumatran jungle, whilst diving into traditional Sumatran culture, Sumatra Expedition Lodge is the place for you!
