Marabahan along the Barito River

Marabahan area is unique for trekking as it has several villages connected by trails that lead through mostly virgin forest. You can stay overnight in the villages. The people in the villages are self sufficient, producing all their own food and supplementing their diet through hunting. Hunting is with either home-made rifles or packs of dogs and spears. While they have more than enough food and fairly good houses, money is difficult to come by as they are isolated from markets. Everyone is in unanimous agreement for the areas forests to be protected and for more tourists to arrive.
