Highlight

The small city of Palangkaraya in Central Kalimantan has been in the news a lot lately. It has been reported in the media that it will be chosen as Indonesia’s new capital, with an announcement due later in the year. So it might be the right time to visit one of Indonesia’s best-kept secrets.

Palangkaraya is also a key base for seeing Indonesia’s beautiful endangered orangutans, which can be found in the forest not too far from the city itself. Explore the nearby waterways in the morning. You are almost guaranteed to see some of these primates on one of two Islands where they are being prepared to return to the wild. Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOS) also has a very effective program, which you can visit.

Palangkaraya is rich in cultural, traditional, and unique tribe in the world. Dayak is the name of the tribe in Central Borneo. Native Dayak people have a strong connection among nature, animal and spirits. Meeting local people in a village which has education project, visiting Orangutans and trekking in a peat swamps jungle that you never feel the same before in another country!
