Sumatra Greenlife Adventure
Ecotourism is our Philosophy
We are called Sumatra GREEN Life Adventure because we strongly believe in ecotourism.
For us as jungle guides, conserving the environment goes without saying and is in our mind intrinsically linked to the well-being of people living here in Bukit Lawang. After all, the rainforest provides a source of income for many locals with its resources as well as in form of tourism but also just in general terms of a comfortable, nature-bound life.
By training and employing local people, in Bukit Lawang but also on our North Sumatra tours to Berastagi and Lake Toba, we commit to our concept of eco-friendliness by providing them an income opportunity lest they participate in illegal activities such as fishing, logging, etc. which are harmful to the jungle and in turn to the people.
And by educating you about the rainforest and the life in a small Indonesian village, we hope to create an awareness for the problems as well as the joys in this part of the world.
And if you want to do something to protect the environment during your travels around Indonesia, read our Eco-travelling-tips.

Our Jungle Guides
Our local jungle guides at Sumatra Green Life Adventure have many years of experience in the jungle. They are keen on sharing their knowledge about the flora and fauna in the tropical rainforest with you and providing you with an eco-friendly experience. They all share a great passion for nature and the protection and conservation of the environment are close to their hearts.
We strive to teach our guests how to comport themselves with the orangutans and other wildlife in the jungle in view of protecting one of the last remaining rainforests on earth.
All our jungle guides are certified by the Indonesian Tourist Guide Association HPI (Himpunan Pramuwisata Indondesia) and offer you professional, environment-friendly and educational treks.
