Arriving in West Kalimantan
After arriving in Pangkalanbun, a tidy little town with a neat waterfront market with lots of gem shops, it’s only short drive to Kumai. Continue by boat into Tanjung Putih, a national park comprising of large lowland reserve of more than 300.000 hectares. You are traveling on the Sekonyer River on the edges of a vast wilderness. The ink black water surface reflects the nipah palms on its shores. Combined with the mysterious surroundings, this is an out-worldly experience. Before you check-in in Rimba Lodge you'll have a first encounter with some orphaned orangutans at Tanjung Putih. Rimba Lodge resembles a wonderful Dayak styled jungle house on wooden stilts, with walkways over the swamp connecting the rooms. Spend the night listening to the sounds of the jungle.
