Tour module 8 days Mighty Mahakam river cruise
The Mahakam river is one of the economic arteries of east Kalimantan. Besides discovering life on and along the river, this cruise brings you to unspoilt wildlife in the jungle and you become familiar with the Dayak culture.
During this 8-day river cruise you stay on a 'houseboat', a solid boat with a simple but clean accommodation.
For this trip you need to be in reasonable physical condition and have a good adaptability.
