Visit Isolated Apokayan Dayak Kenyah & Kayan


The Highlands of the Apokayan are remote located, till today, the area is only possible to reach by the small aircrafts, which fly regular from Samarinda, either Malinau, to obtain a seat, is another hassle, as locals have the first right, and last minutes reservations are seldom successful, due of the limits of availability. Due of it's remote condition, the Apokayan kept away loggers, miners, and tourists from the area. Apokayan is cut off from the downstream part of the Kayan river due of rough water rapids, and therefor a dream destination for those who are adventures with patience.
The fundamentalist missions have influenced a part of the traditional Dayak culture, while most still belief in their animism beliefs. The ecology of the Apokayan region is still in tact. Who wants to watch wildlife  in the pristine forest, can best visit one of the side rivers of the Kayan downstream of Data Dian, plenty of wild pigs and deer including the barking deer are often seen here.

Due the isolation, and limits in lifehood, Lots of the Dayak Kenyah and Kayan Tribe has spread to more downstream locations searching for better life. The population of Apokayan decreased dramatically over the last 20th years and settled in the villages along the Kayan River as Long Betaoh and Long Musang, others migrated to villages along the Mahakam River as Ritan Baru, Bila Tabang, Muara Wahau, Long Segar, Muara Ancalong, Rukun Damai, and Data Bilang, And about 200 families migrated to Pampang, a village about 40km north of Samarinda.

Apokayan now-a-days, is the most south-west region of the youngest North Kalimantan province, The region is part of Indonesian Borneo Island. The region is a forest plateau, of between the 500 - 1700 meters above sea level, bordering Malaysia Borneo, where the Kayan River springs, and streams to the Apokayan to the North Kalimantan capital city Tanjung Selor at the coastal line.

The Apokayan region is an isolated area, with all it's limits in available stuff, which make expenses for food, fuel, and anything else quite expensive.

No drinkable water in the area as Aqua bottles available, while the river is clean, still not recommended to drink from, highly recommend to take purifying pills or water sterilization equipment with you. 
 
The houses in the Apokayan are from wood, with longhouses in most villages, no mattresses, bring your blanket and sleeping bag with you, as you will sleep on the wooden floor.

The Kayan river with its tributaries stretches from the border area between Indonesia and Malaysia along the Muller mountain range to its estuary on the south coast of north Kalimantan. Tanjung Selor, at the estuary of the Kayan river, is the capital of the Bulungan regency and Youngest province North Kalimantan. The Kayan river has a tributary called the Bahau river.
The upstream region of the Kayan river, especially the plateau (400-1,700 meters above sea level), is called Apo Kayan, inhabited by Kenyah Dayaks, who live in the villages of Long Sungai Barang, Lindung Payau, Long Uro, and Long Apung. The plateau is covered with forest and dry rice fields, pepper plantations. The Dayak settlements are found in areas 400 to 800 meters above sea level.
Generally, the Kenyah live in longhouses and are divided into several sub-tribes or umaks. The Tukung occupy the furthest upstream village on the Kayan river, Long Sungai Barang. The Tao live in Lindung Payau and Lonh Uro, and Jalan in Long Apung village.
The umak, or longhouse, has many compartments. Each is called a lamin, used by one family. The length of a lamin is five meters. The length of longhouse is between 100 and 300 meters. In the past, there were longhouses 400 meters long. There are flights from the Long Apung airstrip to Samarinda, a 75 minutes flying distance away. Nawang Baru and the umak dado longhouse are not far from Long Nawang, about three kilometres away. The original arts and culture of the Kenyah, and rattan handicraft items, can still be found here. Besides beautiful jungle and mountain scenery, the Apo Kayan region has a refreshingly cool climate and spring.
