Beyond Kalimantan 's Wildlife Tour
The Great Mahakam River cascade down from the
Muller Mountains of Indonesia East Kalimantan Province, and is a
crucial infrastructure channel between the coast and the deep interior.
The river highway attract tourists who wants to travel into the jungle
regions, and visit the traditional living Dayak tribes, once
headhunters, who still live in communal hard wooden houses called
"Longhouses". The more then 200 Dayak Tribes in the
Hinterland of East Borneo have still kept their original culture,
influenced by the kaharingan supernatural of spirits religion, while
they already left their headhunting activities at the Dutch colonial
period at the beginning of the 20th century. Longhouses and jungle life
are not history yet. The indigenous Dayak settlements along
the Rivers of Kalimantan is an ideal way to experience the
incredible culture, where village elders practice traditional medicine
and mark their status with intricate body tattoos and remarkably heavy
ear adornments, we will be warmly welcomed guests in their
traditional longhouses. At Borneo you can enjoy a sightful
experience of traditional culture and grand diversity of exotic flora
and wildlife from black orchids to fresh water dolphins and orangutans,
and venture ashore for captivating jungle explorations and
unforgettable encounters in our village visits. Join us for a
once-in-a-lifetime exploration of the Kalimantan Island!
