Lonely Planet review
The last guesthouse along the strip near the park entrance, Jungle Inn is an old favourite of many a reader. One room overlooks a waterfall, while another incorporates the hill's rock face, and the bathroom sprouts a shower from living ferns.
Our independent authors have visited Jungle Inn and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Bukit Lawang.
