DAY ONE • Airport Pickup• Kumai• Proboscis Monkey Tour & Houseboat
Welcome to your trekking tour!
Upon arrival at Pangkalan Bun airport, you will be picked up by your guide. After a short drive of 20 minutes to Kumai, you’ll board a private klotok river boat and be taken to register with the local police. The boat is a traditional klotok wooden river boat about 17m by 3m with an upper deck where you can view the rainforest as it glides by.
The guide’s team includes the boatman, a cook, and an expert guide. In the peaceful afternoon, we will slowly explore the quiet river by klotok while observing the wildlife along the riverside, like long nosed (proboscis) monkeys, long tail macaques, and birds.
Dinner is served on the boat, and it’s also where you’ll spend the night. We provide a simple mattress, pillow, fine meal, bottled mineral water, mosquito nets, helpful guides and boatmen, and kitchen facilities. Simple toilet facilities are also available on the boat.
