My time staying at back to nature feels like a dream...it was just so very beautiful. From the location to the friendly staff, to the delicious food, everything was just perfect. The guesthouse is in located in the jungle, 40 minutes away from everything. When you walk along the river to get to the guest house, you will pass some beautiful waterfalls and amazing views of the national park on the other side of the river. And then, between the river and a small waterfall, surrounded by tropical plants and butterflies you will find Back to Nature. The beds are very large, with mosquito nets, the bathrooms are big, with shower and toilet, they are outside but covered.
I felt welcome at all times here and everyone at Back to Nature was always very friendly and happy.
The jungle tracks with the guide from the guesthouse are a once in a lifetime experience...we saw so many Orang Utans very close and other native animals. It was a lot of fun to go river rafting after the tracks, so refreshing! This place will forever be very special to me and I really recommend it if you would like to really live in the Sumatran jungle, surrounded by rainforest and pure beauty.
