Tangkahen Village Forest is located in Pulang Pisau Regency, Central Kalimantan. From Palangkaraya, the capital city of Central Kalimantan, the village is about two hours by road. This village has a village forest of 200 hectares for forest utilization and development without destroying nature.
The development of ecotourism, which combines the historical and cultural potential of the Dayak Ngaju [Dayak Kahayan] on the banks of the Kahayan River, becomes an added value such as cultural history and heritage. The villagers of Tangkahen believe that their village is the place where the Kaharingan religion was descended, the ancestral belief of the Dayak tribe in the folklore of Bawi Ayah.
