Derawan/Maratua Islands Day5-Wahau

Location : Desa Makmur Jaya, Kecamatan Kongbeng, Kabupaten Kutai Timur, Kalimantan Timur, Indonesia.

It was 2pm when we set out from Kutai National Park and headed for Bengalon where our chaffeur Baha’s house as well as convenience store was. Stopped briefly to meet his wife and son before hurrying to our next break which was Wahau.adventure, authentic, budaya, culture, Suku Dayak Kayan, Ethnic, indigenous, Borneo, Kongbeng, native, Obyek wisata, tribal, tribe, village, Wahau,

Arrived at Wahau at about 8pm. The horrible road condition made driving very slow. Checked into Hotel Sonni Permai with breakfast provided at Rp250,000.
