Sebangau National Park in the Koran River area is the closest area in Palangkaraya City which can be reached about 1 hour from Kereng Bengkirai port. Sungai Koran is the largest area of lowland rainforest remaining on the island of Borneo, covering a total of about 600,000 ha of tropical peat swamp forest in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. These forests are of major conservation importance because of their high biodiversity, as a globally significant carbon store and for the function of natural resources that benefit the surrounding communities.
Sebangau The Koran River is home to many endangered species, especially the world’s largest protected orangutan population. More than 6,000 individual samar apes are found here, a stronghold that is prioritized in conservation planning in the area. They are one of nine primate species found here, along with others including the proboscis monkey and South Kalimantan’s largest known population of gibbons. Unsurprisingly in swamp forests, a large number of wetland specialists can be found including the flat-headed cat and Storm heron, as well as other rare charismatic animals, such as the clouded leopard, sun bear and various types of hornbills.
