Borneo's 2/3 part is of the Indonesian territory of Kalimantan. It is famous for its tropical vegetation, exotic flowers and animals, and rich natural resources. It offers a unique universe, unlike any other region in the world. The very first people in Kalimantan were the Dayak , Iban, Punan, and Banuaq tribes; many of which were the forceful headhunters.
They hunted heads, because for them it had a spiritual significance, mostly related to bringing good luck and good crops throughout the year. However, plenty of religions have influenced their philosophy, so they have renounced this frightening custom. Islamic teaching, Hinduism, and even Christianity have reached these people.
These rivers also have another function, that of offering tourists a great entertainment like rafting or simply traveling. They are some of the most beautiful and spectacular rivers in the world, passing through jungles and traditional villages.
Because of the many forests in this area, it has become a great producer of wood for Indonesia. You can find amazing handicrafts here which are made entirely of raw material that is sourced from this area.
Central Kalimantan is made of thick jungles and represents the island's largest province. It is made of mountains, swamps, and plenty of rivers. The climate is tropical, the temperature rises to 26 - 30 degrees Celsius during the day, and to 15 - 20 degrees Celsius in the nighttime. The humidity is average at 70 - 90%.
These nature reserves are but a few reasons to visit this wonderful place on earth. Perhaps, apart from getting to know the culture of these people, one could certainly find a lot of adventure in those tropical jungles, enjoy magnificent sceneries, and gather some memories for lifetime.
