10 days of Mumun's and my trip to Betung Kerihun National Park in West Kalimantan have passed. It was definitely another new and challenging experience. We went into the tropical jungle, the lungs of the world, met so many nice and helpful people, and I proved my expectations about Dayak people to be inaccurate.
We're thankful to G+ who have sponsored our trip, along other travelers who chose different destinations of Indonesia. I think it's a great campaign to show people (mostly Indonesians) the variety and awesomeness (along with not so great reality) of this huge archipelago. A lot of us chose the coastal destinations, I'm glad that I chose the forest.
Here I'm leaving you with some photos from the trip, but these aren't all from Betung Kerihun National Park. Some are from the areas around the 'park'. But lemme just tell ya, it ain't no park for picnic!
The campaign was also supported by the ministry of tourism, Urban Icon Store and SmartFren.

And we'll update the story on Indohoy in these coming weeks.
