Terrario Tangkahan villa, North Sumatra

Terrario Tangkahan villa sets near Mount Leuser National Park in North Sumatra. Nestled amid a tranquil, lush jungle, the villa is around three hours away from Kualanamu International Airport and only 100 meters away by foot from an elephant conservation area.

The villa is said to avoid the use of air conditioners, and guests will still feel comfortable during their stay due to its construction that allows adequate air circulation. Known as a place that supports ecotourism, Tangkahan offers a wide array of activities for travelers, including jungle trekking and elephant riding.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the activities badly, with the area closing for two months, while residents must rely heavily on ecotourism.

Tangkahan has gradually welcomed visitors from nearby cities or regions under health protocols. The public can be responsible travelers by maintaining their waste and supporting efforts that are committed to conservation and sustainability.

The property’s owner, renowned Indonesian Actor, Nicolas Saputra, believes that ecotourism should be available for everyone regardless of their financial status. “Ecotourism can be enjoyed by anybody as it focuses on the quality of its nature. As long as it is preserved, anyone can enjoy it,” Nico said. “It’s not about facility or accessibility, but it’s more about appreciation and learning among nature. I think it shouldn’t be for particular circles only.”

Tangkahan used to be one of the most exploited forests in North Sumatra. Now the local residents turn it into an ecotourism site that is primarily managed by local residents who also collaborate with other institutions to grow the site and train the locals on tourism service.
