Kalimantan

Overview

Borneo is a steamy and exotic land of impenetrable jungle, orangutans and pure white beaches. Despite being world’s third largest island, it remains astonishingly untouched by the wider world.

Indonesia’s sole enclave, Kalimantan, is among the most remote areas and renowned for eco tourism. It’s one of the last true off the radar regions of Asia, but as its popularity increases with each year, its secretive world becomes a little bit smaller.

To visitors to Kalimantan, the name conjures images of dense rainforest, hoots and hollers from monkeys in the trees above, and indigenous tribes and undisturbed by western influences. Despite concerns over treelogging, its ecosystems are thriving and extraordinary.

Orangutans live out their gentle existence in Tanjung Putting National Park, mountain trekking in Bukit Baka Bukit Raya is awarded with dazzling panoramic views of meandering streams and flowing waterfalls. Perfect white sandy beaches offer a little down; a particular favourite is Palou Datok, a sandy cove encircled by the lush rainforest.
