We had an amazing time at Pindra and JulelaÕs guesthouse. Such a kindhearted family. The atmosphere is very relaxed, welcoming and familiar. What I liked is they donÕt try to push you into booking a trip or a trek.
The place is clean and very spacious, food is excellent and wifi (only in the restaurant area) is fast. Room no. 5 has the best view and is right by the river.
We did a 3-day trek and saw 8 orang utans and all kinds of other monkeys, wild pigs and plants. They even provided us with sleeping bags.
The journey to ketambe is a bit long but it is really worth the experience __________
Really friendly owners, good food and amazing trekking. Saw a lot of wild orangutans and had a great time in the jungle. Thanks to Pindra and his wife :)
Great trekking! Really nice family. They offer good accomodation and sell delicious homemade meals. They also organise trekking to the jungle to see orangutans. We did 3 days trek and saw many orangutans and also other types of monkeys, birds, reptiles. Highly recommended!!
My boyfriend and I recently had a wonderful stay at Sadar Wisata over 5 days including 3 days in the jungle which I highly recommend to anyone looking to visit Gunung Leuser National Park to trek
The owner of the Guesthouse Pindra and his wife Julela are so lovely, helpful and make you feel very welcome along with Mario who seems to help out with anything & everything at the Guesthouse. Pindra organises the trekking and arranged taxis for us from / back to Medan which worked out well. He also has a great laugh & is always smiling :)
At the Guesthouse we stayed in one of the large bungalows which is basic but comfortable and the bed had a have mosquito net. We ate all of our meals in their restaurant which are cooked by Julela and are very tasty and good value - we miss her cooking! There is Wi-Fi in the restaurant area which didn't always work and often cut out.
Our trek was guided by Abdul who I can't recommend enough as well as Mario who carried the camping gear and made us delicious hot meals to come back to. The tent which we camped in was basic and made from plastic sheeting which was great at keeping the rain out but not so much ants and insects. It's not a problem though if you know what to expect - it is the jungle after all!
Whilst trekking over the 3 days Abdul spotted 18 orangutans, a black haired gibbon, rhinoceros hornbills, squirrels, lots of macaque and thomas leaf monkeys amoung other animals. Abdul also pointed out interesting insects, fruits and fungi and is generally very knowledgeable about the jungle as well as being friendly, approachable and a pleasure to trek with.
All in all a great Guesthouse with excellent hosts and guides who really made our visit __
we went at Sadar Wisata in the first days of august 2017. One night at the guest house and 3 night, 4 days inside jungle. Really a beautiful experience. Pindra's hospitality incredible, and his family too. Guides for the jungle fantastic. Thank you Sharil, Eddie and Hamze for your love to the nature, your smiles, your song, your dance, your trick ! Thank you for making us feel like brothers. We love you guys, we love jungle, we love Ketambe, we love Sumatra, we love Indonesia. Thanks for all and hope to see you soon.
