In Indonesia we made a boat trip to see Villages of civilized Dajak, Orang Utans and a part of the indonesian forest.

For adventure in this place to see orang utan, Dayak tribe and rain forest, we had to rent a boat, with variety prices according to the size and type of boat. Price was expensive when we rented it, because we chose more private. From the boat across the river we could see the mangrove swamps, lowland rain forest, dense forest and of also a few of orangutan.

Two orangutans in the trees that we can only see from far away, the guards did not allow our ships, to get closer, because at the time other than the river water was receding and could cause the shipwreck, also to avoid them jump into the boat. That would be dangerous, because we can never predict what will happen.

This bridge is in Palangkaraya and we saw it when we started the boat trip a bit in the south of the bridge. Larger Mapview. This map shows the landing place of the boat as well as the bridge. The boat took the way under the bridge to the northern part of the river.
