Immerse in the Local Village Life of Batu Katak


You will be picked up by one of our local guides and travel via bus and motorbike to our village Batu Katak. You will be warmly welcomed and can enjoy a typical Karonese welcome. In the afternoon you can relax and stroll around the village, and in the evening you are invited to help teach English in the village.

The next day or days, you can explore the rugged beauty of the karst forest, home to Orangutans, Siamang Gibbons, and the Sun Bear. We have many underground rivers and rare plants. You also can help in our medicine garden. This is a community initiative to educate about and preserve local traditional medicine.

We also offer different trekking options to explore the jungle, see the Rafflesia flower, meet the Gibbons or go for a multiple-day tiger trekking.

We stayed at this bungalow after an introduction to Darwin. The area of Batu Katak is wonderful and picturesque. The bungalow is basic but has all you need. Every day the food was cooked fresh and the people were wonderful. Thanks so much for this great experience!

About Me

We are a community from Batu Katak, a small village close to the popular tourist site of Bukit Lawang. We started some tourism activities hoping to stop an intended cement factory that will take limestone from a unique karst forest adjacent to the village. We try to strengthen the value of preserving the forest with our tourism activities.
