Archipelago in Indonesia are explorers and joy also for travelers who want to be beaten tourist path and immerse themselves into different cultures and participate in activities outside the normal tourist-standard. Each island has something for visitors, both for hiking, rock climbing, rafting or just photos, the list is long. On the island of Borneo is by far the island in search of adventure. It does not mean that you have to be young and super-fit.

Instead, I found many middle-aged and older people on the tracks and warungs enjoy the trip. I recommend adventure travel by boat in the Mahakam River. The length of about 980 km, which follows the Highlands of the mouth of the Strait in Kokstad. You will not find in the city of Pune, which is located along the river, 48 km from the mouth. The major rivers in the region in East Kalimantan, where you can find older vessels using the navigation system in relation to the Highlands. And at this point that the rapid start-up and longboats used to navigate the waters.
As you progress along the river from its mouth, impressive parties jungle that was once there has to surface water and groundwater Desecrated. Syndebuk more than deforestation, but the progress upstream, more green-style Amazon jungle to be outstanding. Passenger line the river, the fastest, and then in Long Bagun can arrange Longboat take more upstream. Always negotiate the price. The entire trip is a real adventure and major river passes, the more panoramic view of nature and wild animals. Wealth and trunk monkeys, apes that the area is common, which is the explosion of color plumagem many birds. To be sure, such a trip is not feint of heart or those who want to relax in a comfortable five-star hotels. It is this experience can never forget. Yes, I can assure you again in Kalimantan… again and again.
