It covers an area roughly the size of France and is divided onto four separate provinces – West Kalimantan, East Kalimantan, South KalimantanNorth Kalimantan, and Central Kalimantan.

Traveling in Kalimantan – as delightful as the experience can be – is not for the faint at heart traveler. You won’t find much is the way of air conditioned, cushioned comfort here. You’ll likely find yourself on a wooden boat cruising one of Kalimantan’s many rivers or on an old bus slogging your way through the dense jungle on roads that will test your resolve.

When you leave, you will be wondering if you discovered something wonderful in Kalimantan or if Kalimantan helped you discover something wonderful within yourself.
