Hiking In Kalimantan

This time again on a trip to Kalimantan Timur, Borneo i did a small hike in Sungai Wain. Sungai Wain protected forest occupies ~10,000 hectares of swamp forest, lowland forest and mangrove. The lucky ones will see orang-utan, sun bears and proboscis monkey. There are 4 defined trails in the park and we did hike the trail 2 which takes about 1 hr. Expect to get your boots wet. Remember to wear full sleeve while inside the forest.

Sungai Wain is about 35 kms from Balikpapan Airport and takes 1 hr depending on traffic. The guide charges Rp 100,000 per hour.
