Paddy Fields of Kandangan, Kabupaten Hulu Sungai Selatan

Location : Kecamatan Kandangan, Kabupaten Hulu Sungai Selatan, Kalimantan Selatan, Indonesia.

The downhill drive from Loksado along the Kandangan-Batu Licin Road was easy as the road was very well maintained for the safety of tourists. In less than an hour we arrived at Kandangan, a town famous for its ‘ketupat’ and ‘dodol’.
