Barito jungle trek expedition 7D/6N

The Highlights

  • Jungle trekking
  • Overnight stay in jungle camps
  • Bamboo rafting
  • Borneo’s fascinating wildlife
  • Diamond digging


This Barito jungle trek expedition takes you to South Kalimantan where the Meratus Mountain rises up to 2,000 meters above sea level. The Barito River is a crucial infrastructure channel between the coast and the interior highlands. The “river highway” attracts tourists who want to travel deep into the jungle. South Kalimantan’s dense forest and wide terrain of wetlands have traditionally kept the region isolated from all but the adventurous travelers.  Along the upper reaches of the rivers, you can discover the rich Banjarese and Dayak Culture.

The Barito River jungle trek expedition is perfect if you want to learn more about the traditional Dayak culture and Kalimantan’s exotic fauna and flora. Although this tour offers an unforgettable experience, it is designed for those who are adventurous in both body and spirit. Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime exploration!

Great jungle trek

Really good combo of nature and culture. It was just me and my wife on this trip, which made it even better. Great jungle hikes and lovely local people!
