Kahayan Dayak & Orangutan Adventure
The Dayak Tribes in the Hinterland of
Kalimantan 's Kahayan River area have still kept their original
culture, influenced by the kaharingan supernatural of spirits religion.
Central Kalimantan ’s dense jungle and wide terrain of
wetlands have traditionally kept the region isolated from all but the
adventurous travelers, and along the upper reaches of the rivers, you
can discover the rich Dayak Culture. The indigenous Dayak settlements
along the Kahayan, Katingan and Rungan Rivers of Central Kalimantan are
an ideal way to experience the incredible culture. 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 at Tangkiling National Park. Join us for a
once-in-a-lifetime exploration of the Kalimantan Island!
The Kahayan Orangutan Adventure Tour Expeditions are a collection of
