On The Rocks Bungalow & Restaurant
You’re in the JUNGLE!
This is what “On the Rocks” is for – jungle feeling pure.
Our place is located on top of the hill – surrounded by pure nature, located directly beside the border to the national park. No motorbikes, no other guesthouses beside us – a quite and relaxing spot with a colorful big garden and lovely private wooden bungalows.
ON THE ROCKS owners are a indo-german married couple.
Wawan and Corinna are living permanently at ON THE ROCKS.
Wawan is a senior guide of Bukit Lawang with a guiding experienced since 1995.
He started as a guide and also built a small cafe in the village. After some years of guiding for guesthouses in Bukit Lawang, he was able to make his dream come true:
A bungalow lodge with own jungle trekking team on top of the hill.
3 small bungalows with a shared bathroom and a small restaurant were built at the beginning. With a lot of effort he designed his dream of a nature looking bungalow lodge. With a lot of knowledge about the jungle and its wild life he built up a jungle trekking team.
Due to the hard work he put into his lodge, ON THE ROCKS never stops to improve and always stays on a high quality standard.
Corinna is originally from germany. Travelled to many places around the world and fell in love with the beautiful sumatran jungle. Corinna will be your booking contact person.
No bungalow lodge without a good team!
