Nora Rainforest in Bukit Lawang

During the days I visited the Gunung Leuser National Park in Bukit Lawang I stayed in Nora's Rainforest Guesthouse. It is a simple cabin halfway to the jungle and where only the noise of the river, birds and monkeys is heard when they go down to the village to fishing something.

The atmosphere at Nora's Guesthouse is very familiar. Nora is an abundant woman in meats - curious thing in Sumatra - and with her live her sister and a few children, some already teenagers with the guitar always in hand and others very small. You breathe family and welcome you wonderfully.

I came to Bukit Lawang with stomach problems and they really took care of me. They gave me some jungle herbs, cooked soft foods and even a woman from town came to give me a great stomach massage with medicinal herbs. Of course, it helped, although the good atmosphere and love that is breathed in Nora's Guesthouse also did its thing.

I was staying in a room in the individual cabin and its bathroom. I left only for 30,000 rupees.

I agreed with very few tourists during my four days in Bukit Lawang but we all agreed that Nora is a real host and a great mother for travelers who travel alone around the world. Now, be careful belching!

There is also an attached cabin where the rooms are much simpler and you leave for 15,000 rupees - the cheapest I've seen in all of Indonesia.

Once lodged there you can see the kids how they cross the river, sack and without contemplations, with this video you will understand it wonderfully.

The cuisine is good and abundant with fruit salads, traditional Sumatra dishes as well as some western dishes at a good price.

If you approach one day, give my regards to Nora and her family of a bearded Spanish.

However, in Bukit Lawang - at least in November - there are many hostels and restaurants and most are empty. It would be nice if you distributed the money in different places to sleep and eat.
