Kayan Mentarang National Park

Introduction

General
Kayan Mentarang National Park covers an area of 1,600,000 ha and is located in the far interior of East Kalimantan province.
The park comprises the largest remaining block of rainforest in Borneo and as such forms a very important refuge for numerous species, including many species that are endemic to the Bornean mountain bioregion. About half of the reserve consists of species-rich dipterocarp lowland forest while mountain forest ranges up to Kayan Mentarang’s highest mountain at 2,550 m.
The park is inhabitated by several thousand Dayak and Punan people who live from shifting cultivation and rice farming. Wildlife is hard to see due to hunting by native Dayaks. WWF has been working on developing eco-tourist projects in cooperation with the local people. It has 5 field-offices in settlements around the park, which are helpful for information. It also has a research station at Long Alango, north of Long Pujungan, which can be visited, and is probably the best place to see wildlife.
Access
Kayan Mentarang National Park is very remote and only accessible by public flights on the Samarinda-Long Ampung and Tarakan-Long Bawan routes, or by public riverboats following the Tarakan-Tanjung Selor-Long Pujungan route.
Accommodation
There’s no official accommodation, but it’s possible to stay in the various Dayak settlements in the park.

Kayan Mentarang National Park, with a total area of 1,360,500 hectares, forms the largest single area of primary and old secondary forest not only in Kalimantan but in the whole of southeast Asia.

This Park has an astonishing diversity of plant and animal species, many of which are either endangered or protected, a huge diversity of ecosystem types, from lowland rain forest to moss-covered forest in the high mountains.

Some plants that have already been recorded in the Park include pulai (Alstonia scholaris), jelutung (Dyera costulata), ramin (Gonystylus bancanus), damar (Agathis borneensis), kayu ulin (Eusideroxylon zwageri), rengas (Gluta wallichii), gaharu (Aquilaria malacensis), various orchid species, palm trees and pitcher plants. There are still several plants that have not yet been identified as they are all new plant species in Indonesia.

There are about 100 species of mammal (15 of them are endemic species), eight species of primate and more than 310 species of bird, of which 28 are endemic to Kalimantan and have been registered by the ICBP (International Committee for Bird Protection) as endangered species.

There are several rare species of mammal, like the clouded leopard (Neofelis nebulosa), sun bear (Helarctos malayanus euryspilus), Hoss leaf monkey (Presbytis hosei canicrus), white-fronted leaf monkey (P. frontata frontata),pig-tailed macaque (Macaca nemestrina nemestrina), and banteng (Bos javanicus lowi).

Kayan Mentarang National Park and Betung Kerihun National Park both directly border upon Sarawak, Malaysia.

Rivers such as the Bahau, Kayan and Mentarang are used as transport routes into the Park. Along the journey, visitors can not only catch glimpses of various animals around the river, they also experience at first-hand the agility of a longboat in navigating the rapids or struggling against swift currents.

The 20,000-25,000 people living around the Park area, representing various Dayak tribes, e.g. the Kenyah, Punan, Lun Daye and Lun Bawang, have a vast store of wisdom that is very much in line with the principles of conservation. Since it plays an important part in their daily lives, the local people are skilled at conserving the biodiversity that surrounds them. Several varieties of rice, for instance, are cultivated and harvested in ways that can support the needs of the community. Archaeological remains in the form of ancient graves and stone tools are found in many parts of the Park, indicating that the area has been inhabited for at least the last 350 years. It is considered to be one of the most important archaeological sites in Kalimantan.
This high biodiversity and the pristine condition of the area poses a challenge for researchers to discover new species and develop the benefits that can be derived from them. For adventurers and tourists, there is the challenge of discovering for themselves the natural beauty of the forest, with its rivers and steep cliffs, and learning more about the fascinating Dayak culture.
Best time of year to visit: September to December.
How to reach the Park: from Samarinda to Tarakan by plane, about 1 hour; then from Tarakan to the Park by speedboat along the Mentarang river. This takes from 6 hours to one day.

They turned out to have local knowledge in accordance with the principles of nature conservation. They have the knowledge and the independence of how to maintain biodiversity in their environment.

There are several types of activities offered in the area Kayan Mentarang National Park this, among them are hiking, natural scenery, jungle tracking, along the rivers, waterfalls, and so forth.
