Tanjung Puting National Park, Love all of your Orangutans

ISAW2434.JPGFeeling tired after a long trip from Palangkaraya, Sampit, up to Pangkalan Bun did not make us lose our spirit to go to Tanjung Puting National Park. Great curiosity towards Orangutan in the national park has defeated our fatigue.

We plan to visit three locations: Tanjung Harapan, the second camp is Pondok Tanggui, the Third Camp is Camp Leakey. But we miss a location, Tanjung Harapan.
