Typically you will be walking in a small group of up to 4, along with an experienced and fully trained tour guide, depending on trek you may also have an assistent with you. Many guests tells step through the forest view many large tree are the highlights of the whole trekking time.
Our range of guests treks and camping includes challenging routes at the rainforest, along the hills and river with rock and cascades on Lamandau. These are for guests with aged 19+, but option for younger guests include a gentler walk in the terraced foothills of borneo rainforest.

But on some tour we can make the tour be come our main focus of the trip: fully immersing ourselves into local life and experiencing how to local people live.
