Welcome to KUTA LANGIS Base Camp the focus of our conservation and community work.
Come and visit our project headquarters for the day or even stay over for a night or more in one of the simple rooms or on the camping platform. Kuta Langis is an amazing place to reconnect with nature, 'REWILD' yourself and do absolutely nothing other than relax, use our visitor/education centre or do one of the many activities on offer.
We exclusively offer Green Hill guests the chance to stay at Kuta Langis.
Perhaps you have an art project you want to work on, or maybe you want to do some yoga/meditation. Maybe you want to bring a group here for a retreat (food lovers/yoga/art etc). We very much welcome enquiries for longer stays and are happy to facilitate your programme and stay at Kuta Langis.

In and around Kuta Langis...
You can do many things without even leaving Greenwood. Simply take time to relax, chill out, read your book or perhaps do some yoga or meditate. Sit on the bamboo viewing platform and drink your morning coffee whilst listening to the sounds of jungle wildlife awakening such as Siamangs, Hornbills and White handed gibbons. Walk around birdspotting and look for dragonflys around the natural spring water pool or try and spot the baby turtle that lives there. Walk down to the river and have a swim or relax in our riverside cabin with a picnic lunch.
Information & Inspiration centre: we are developing our information centre where you can learn about the conservation and biodiversity of GNLP or browse through our collection of books some of which are bilingual so you can even practise your Indonesian and read with the local kids! We also have materials for creative learning, crafting and colouring.
Explore the villages....
There are two villages close to Kuta Langis Base Camp, Tualang Gepang and Bukit Kencur, they are surrounded by palm oil plantations and the main income is from rubber tapping and subsistence farming. You can take a guided walk around and learn about daily village life (a great option for kids to learn about a different way of life). You can also take a wander around on your own and perhaps sit in the little warungs (cafe) and buy some snacks or have a coffee or some noodles and maybe even join in the later afternoon badminton and Takrow (best described as foot volleyball played using a ball made from rattan). We have an active community conservation project which you can join in and you can help make a difference.
You can of course use KutaLangis as a base from which to go trekking and explore virtually untouched rainforest! Anything is possible from a few hours river walk, a day scrambling through canyons and swimming in waterfalls to multi day treks with camping in the jungle. There is plenty of wildlife to see but as it is truly wild and not used to human visitors it generally tends to hide away from humans. Only Green Hill take guests trekking in this area and have many many years experience here so you are not likely to meet any other trekkers.
