Best guesthouse and trekking tour at Ketambe.
The guesthouse offers different types of rooms. Prices are very good. We stayed in the cheapest one, and it had a double bed and private room. The fresh water it is all you need. The location is perfect, since you start the trekking just from there. Food is cheap and amazing. And the family that runs the guesthouse and offers the trekking tour are lovely poeple. We had the best time sharing with them lots of stories. I definitely recommend this place. Perfect place to spot wild orangutans in Sumatra. Mario, our guide, has a great ability to find them. He speaks great english and is full of energy.
Best place for planning jungle trekking & rafting tour with good owner
Hardly could ask for more in remote Ketambe. Old place but good enough for us, got the room facing the river which was so quiet. Friendly and helpful staff, nice food.
We felt really comfortable in the guesthouse, the room we had was basic and quite cheap. They have different rooms and access to the river. The place is quite calm. We did the jungle trekking for 3days and it was an amazing experience. The guides were super sympathetic and explained us a lot in the jungle and gave a big effort to find wildlife.
Mario - the Manager of the guesthouse- is a very nice guy and also tells a lot about life in Ketambe and about the jungle.
We had a very good time in this village! Nothing to complain about.
Amazing home in the jungle!
This lovely guesthouse was a great place to relax before and after jungle trekking. The room was clean, the food delicious and Pindra is the one of kindest host I have ever met!
When we arrived, I was worried about jungle trekking and not having cash (no ATM in Ketambe). Pindra was always smiling, explained everything and completely reassured me! He helped organise an incredible jungle trek (with Mario as our porter), book our transportation from the guesthouse to Medan and asked Mario to drive us to the nearest city to withdraw money.
Mario is really awesome, he is funny, kind and helpful. As our porter, he cooked fantastic food (banana pancakes every morning!) and is such a great person to hang out with!
