Location : Sungai Kapuas, Kecamatan Putussibau Selatan, Kabupaten Kapuas Hulu, Kalimantan Barat, Indonesia.

* The Kapuas River is located in West Kalimantan, Indonesia. 
At 1,143 kilometers (710 mi) in length, it is the longest river 
of Indonesia and one of the world's longest island rivers.

Finally, on the third day we set out for Matalunai the destination this trip was all about. It would be the base for the next few days’ activities as we explored further. Martin and his Sungai Asap gang took the longboat organized by our host Madam Lala while we took the car to join them at Lunsara. The 15hp boat would take them an hour while the drive 30min.

The sky was gloomy during the whole trip which was good so we would not have to worry about the sun as the boat was not shaded. adventure, boat ride, authentic, traditional, backpackers, destination, Putussibau Selatan, Indonesia, Kapuas Hulu, Suku Dayak Bukat, tribe, Tourism, tourist attraction, village, crossborder, 婆罗洲西加里曼丹 Situs Neolitikum, stone artifacts, authentic, traditional, backpackers, destination, Borneo, Dusun Nanga Balang, Putussibau Selatan, Kalimantan Barat, native, Pariwisata, tourist attraction, travel guide, crossborder,Longboat ride, River, adventure, nature, outdoor, backpackers, destination, Borneo, Desa Beringin Jaya, village, Tourism, tourist attraction, travel guide, Transborneo, 印尼西加里曼丹speedboat ride, adventure, nature, outdoor, backpackers, Borneo, Desa Beringin Jaya, West Kalimantan, Suku Dayak Bukat, village, Obyek wisata, Tourism, travel guide, crossborder, 婆罗洲西加里曼丹As we moved along the Kapuas river, we noticed what seemed like a zip line across the breadth of the river. One end would be secured high up on a tree nearest the bank and the other on the opposite bank much lower. Most would have a boat anchored to it with another short line. These were no ordinary boats but special boats designed for gold mining. Despite the rainy season, much mining activities were still ongoing. Needless to say erosion and environmental destruction are part and parcel of this small time industry.adventure, boat ride, gold mining, traditional, backpackers, Borneo, Desa Beringin Jaya, Indonesia, Suku Dayak Bukat, native, Pariwisata, travel guide, village, crossborder, 婆罗洲西加里曼丹 Penambangan Emas, adventure, boat ride, traditional, Borneo, Desa Beringin Jaya, Dusun Nanga Balang, Putussibau Selatan, Kapuas Hulu, native, tribe, Obyek wisata, Tourism, travel guide, village, transborder adventure, gold mining, backpackers, authentic, traditional, Putussibau Selatan, Indonesia, Suku Dayak Bukat, native, Pariwisata, Tourism, travel guide, village, transborneo, 婆罗洲西加里曼丹,Through our journey up the Kapuas river we noticed many freshly cut hills as a major road was being constructed connecting West Kalimantan with East Kalimantan.

Not far from Long Apari is Datah Dawai which has an airport with Susi Air catering for daily flights to SamarindaNext……Nanga Balang.
