Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive in Pangkalan Bun - Tanjung Puting

On arrival, you will be driven to Kumai port where you will board the traditional “Klotok” river boat, which will take you up the 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 the inboard or outboard motor and is specially built to navigate through shallow waters and narrow sections of the river. The friendly boat crew usually consists of Capitan, cook and tour guide. The Klotok is very simple but equipped with mattress with blankets, pillows and mosquito nests. A very basic toilet is located at the back of the boat.

Spend the night on board.
