Tanjung Puting National Park is home to the largest wild population of Orangutans. Orangutan is a combination of two words: Orang (person) + Utan (forest) which means Old Man of the Forest.
Exploring the national park is usually an overnight experience onboard a klotok. After the first day, I thought if you’ve seen one Orangutan, you’ve seen them all. I did not realize that the best was yet to come.
Here’s the day 2 highlight of our Tanjung Puting National Park Adventure:
