Home to Indonesia’s longest river, the Kapuas, and two National Parks nominated as World Heritage and Ramsar sites by UNESCO, West Kalimantan is a great place to explore Borneo’s heart.
WWF works closely with Komunitas Pariwisata Kapuas Hulu (KOMPAKH), a community based ecotourism organisation in the Kapuas Hulu district of West Kalimantan. KOMPAKH began in 2005 as a way to promote responsible tourism to the Kapuas Hulu district. It also supports the wellbeing of local communities.
Supported by WWF and the local government, communities in HuluPujungan, HuluBahau (Malinau) and the Krayan Highlands (Nunukan) have been working together to progress ecotourism projects since 2002.
Both HuluPujungan and KrayanHulu are partially included in the KayanMentarang National Park, the first park in Indonesia to be managed collaboratively with local communities.
Some areas are ideal destinations for ecotourism expeditions and jungle trekking, short- and long-distance, amidst primary and secondary forest. A world of wild rivers adventures, old village sites and archeological remains, traditional culture and village life, and Dayak warm hospitality awaits visitors.
