Kalimantan

KALIMANTAN, LAND OF UNDISCOVERED NATURAL BEAUTY

Kalimantan conjures up the image of a land that is mysterious and exotic, with primeval, remote jungles and exotic tribes still living in them in primitivie conditions deep in the interiors. Occupying 73% of the island of Borneo this is one of the least visited province in Indonesia. Dominated by jungles, mountains and raging rivers, Kalimantan offers to visitors a rare sight into a unqiue culture – from the traditional villages of the Dayak tribe to the floating markets of Banjarmasin, cruise along the Mahakam River to trekking in the Kayan Mentarang National Park and thr rich flora and fauna that include proboscis monkeys, orangutans and rare birds.

Kalimantan has four provinces namely, West Kalimantan, Central Kalimantan, South Kalimantan and East Kalimantan. The island was originally inhabited by the Dayak, also known as Orang Gunung (Mountain People), who traditionally live in longhouses called Lamin or Umaq Daru. Today the island is home to 10 million inhabitants including Chinese and Javanese ethnic groups.
