Settled in the middle of lush jungle and just next to the river, it is the perfect starting point for tracking trails and bamboo rafting. The lodge is a new structure and by far the best in town. All wooden built and with lovely grounds. A clean, relaxing spot for a couple of days of nature immersion. The rooms are... More

We tried to organize a trip on Meratus mountains, from Loksado (staying there 3 nights). However, we had problems to organize the trip from there and at the end the experience was slighlty dissapointing as we saw little forest and little dayak culture --less than expected at least--. A lot of waterfalls, forest and waterfalls and traditional dayak culture; however... More

If you want to go for a trip on Meratus Mountains, Loksado is a good spot where to stay and organise your trip. Consider please, there is no wi fi in Loksado, nor 3G, so maybe you'd better organise everthing a little bit in advance. Amat ( +62 (0)813 48766573, is the tourist guides coordinator in Loksado, we strongly recommend... More

Not expecting much from the trekking trip, but glad we did it! Amazing views on the way to the inside Dayak villages. So many things to see and learn from our guide! We stayed at 2 different villages for a 3 day trip. Although a lot of the villages were dirty and garbage everywhere, that's the saddest part, the treks... More

We visited east Kalimantan last july and used the services of De'Gigant tours to organize a cruise on river Mahakam. Our feedback is mitigated : the tour operator is certainly reliable but no flexibility or empathy from the owner when planning the trip and the rate charged is outrageous for the quality of the boat offered. Our advice : If... More

the mountain is a huge one in south kalimantan where you can find virgin forest that has many kinds of trees,flowers,animals and local tribes ( called " Dayak " ). the mountain also has many clean and stony rivers around where you can raft by using bamboo. this is the experience you will not to forget.

Amazing place. Wonderful people I think the whole time there I was trying to work out how I could move there. What an adventure. You MUST have a small amount of Indonesian to travel there. IOtherwise there are English speaking guides in Banjarmasin who all want to take you there. Frankly the english speaking guides drove us nuts! So we... More
