Day 1: PANGKALAN BUN – TANJUNG PUTING NATIONAL PARK 

Pick up: from Pangkalan Bun airport upon your arrival

On arrival in Pangkalan Bun you will be met at the airport and driven for about 30 minutes to Kumai port where you will board the traditional “Klotok” river boat, which will take you up river to Tanjung Puting National Park. In the peaceful afternoon, we will slowly explore the Sekonyer River in search of primates. The traditional Klotok is a traditional two-storeyed wooden river boat equipped with inboard or outboard motor, and is specially built to navigate through shallow waters and narrow sections of the river. The friendly boat crew consists of Capitan, cook and tour guide. The Klotok is very simple but equipped with mattress with blankets, pillows and mosquito nets. A very basic toilet is located at the back of the boat.
