LOVELY FOREST and MOUNTAINS in EAST KALIMANTAN

As part of our "Environment Journalism Workshop" sponsored by the UN and Antara NEws Agency of Indonesia, we rode on a helicopter owned by the richest man in that country which took us to its reforestation project deep in East Kalimantan.

Hence, I cannot tell you exactly the location but it is a logging area and they have ongoing projects to reforest once they cut down the trees. I just hope it is still happening in Indonesia as I heard about the various floods and mudflows happening there in recent years!

It wa also m y first ride on a huge helicopter which could carry around 8 of us! I was terrifed but we were assured it was safe! We had to wear ear muffs!

Thanks to google images for this pic, I shall post my own once the scanning of the photos have completed!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:lots of natural evergreen forest
  • Cons:a bit isolated, only accessible by helicopter
  • In a nutshell:EAST KALIMANTAN was a joyful place, I will go back in a heartbeat but not on a helicopter!
