Classic Klotok Trip plus day 3-4 option Pondok Tanggoi and Camp Pesalat Campground
See day 1-2 of classic klotok trip.
Day 3 Pondok Tanggoi/Jungle Trekking/Camping in the Jungle
Meet the ranger at the second station, Pondok Tanggoi, after breakfast. Trek 4-5 hours through the jungle. Take lunch in the jungle, and camp overnight in a tent mid-jungle, with your ranger guide.
Day 4 Pondok Tanggoi and Camp Pesalat Campground
Wake in the jungle for breakfast, then trek back to the klotok. We will journey to Camp Pesalat. See day 3 option A for more information about Camp Pesalat and the reforestation program (each tree is 50,000 IDR and a separate cost from the tour).
We will return to the klotok and have lunch as we journey downriver to Kumai. The tour will finish at 12:00.
Stay a little longer
We encourage you to stay a little longer and enjoy and explore our beautiful Kalimantan! We offer other eco tours and cultural tours, and there is a variety of local lodging options.
We also suggest allowing a little extra time, as there can be delays due to weather, etc. when traveling to and from Kalimantan.
The rate includes: taxi to/from the airport to Kumai; boat (klotok); English-speaking guide; boat captain; cook; meals; snacks; drinks (bottled water; soft drinks; tea; coffee); and national park permits (including camera fee and boat docking fee). Prices for the Tanjung Puting orangutan tour do not include gratuities for the crew (tour guide, boat captain, assistance captain, and cook). Central Kalimantan is a predominantly Muslim area, so alcohol is not sold or served.
The klotok rate includes lodging and meals. You sleep on the covered top deck of the klotok; the crew provides single or double bed mosquito nets. There is a simple shower onboard, but if you want more creature comforts, you might want to stay at a Sekonyer village homestay or Rimba Ecolodge (see Local Lodging section for more details).
You can arrange three full days on the river if you stay an extra night or two in the delightfully small port town of Kumai, Rimba EcoLodge (on the edge of Tanjung Puting), or Yayorin’s ecolodge. Three full days provide additional orangutan viewing opportunities and serenity, as you have more time on your klotok and solo time on the river. We can, of course, arrange custom-designed tours and more time in the jungle or on the river, if you wish.
Please note, peak season is May-September, and prices will be higher.
Please bring two copies of your passport for the police and national park permit. There is a photocopy shop in Kumai, but it is sometimes closed.
