Stuck in the Middle of Tanjung Puting National Park – The other day, we went to Tanjung Puting National Park in Central Kalimantan. By far the best way to see Tanjung Puting National Park is by hiring a klotok or wooden-boat for a few days. It serves as your transportation, hotel and restaurant.

At night the crew moor the boat well away, allowing passengers to enjoy the sunsets, fireflies, and wildlife in peace. Sleep on mattresses on the upper deck, wake to the haunting cries of gibbons at dawn and watch for the telltale splash of big crocodile. That night was just like in an adventure movie.

Then, while we were on the river to the Camp Leakey, we got stuck in the middle of nowhere. And, here are some photos and videos:
