According to Tengger the original tribe inhabiting Mount Bromo people, Mount Bromo is a holy mount, so it requires an annual ceremony called Yadnya Kasada or Kasado. It is a local ritual of throwing natural wealth into the crater of the mount. The ceremony is held at midnight in a full moon of the tenth month of Javanese calendar. By such ritual, Tengger people ask for an abundant harvest and hope for being avoided from disaster and recuperation from ilness.
The cruise went well and the guests were very happy. Importantly our river routes have been untouched by the fires. We look forward to welcoming back more guests to this beautiful part of the world.
Canals were once the only highways, now more than 60 canals, lined densely with stilt cottages, are still used for transportation. Klotoks fly along the narrow waterways, gangs of kids dive in and grab on for free rides, and the everyday life of the people is open to all passers by.
Further up the canals are the rice paddies, parched now in the dry season, the grains ripening and patiently picked stem by stem by women with a homemade device looking like a spinning top, with a cutting edge. Slowly the rice is gathered and sold to the market. The nearby tiny village is home to the farmers, fishermen and boatmen, living a life simple and constrained by the seasons.
A drive to Banjar Baru leads to the Lambung Mangkurat Museum which offers a fascinating insight into the old life of the trading peoples of the region and the Dutch colonial era. Outstanding pieces are an ornate beaten gold backed throne came from a bygone era of sultans, and a serene landscape with lines of marching regiments going to the top of a hill.
We saw exhibitions of the art of bark fabrics, some gossamer thin, patiently beaten out using a bamboo mallet. And another one of ceramics, with a wonderful naive painting of the smooth appealing shapes of earthenware vessels. In recent years this pattern has varied.
This year, with the combination of an El Nino weather pattern, we are being warned to expect a longer and drier season than usual.
Our cruises have been suspended for September and October as a result. The extended dry conditions and the lack of rain have led to land clearance fires going out of control over large areas of Kalimantan, causing low visibility and high levels of particulate air pollution.
These conditions make it unhealthy for our guests and unsafe to operate boats on the river. Our airport suffers daily flight delays and cancellations. As the rains normally return in November, and some rains are predicted to start falling in early October, our cruises will recommence from November.
To ensure that all guests on our cruises enjoy the activities as described in our website, we have amended the programs to adapt to the river as levels go down.
This program uses more car transfers and a sample is printed below. We will automatically revert to our normal programs should the river conditions improve.
On arrival in Palangkaraya Port, do a walking though the boardwalk village to the handicraft street. Board the boat again for lunch and the cruise to Tanjung Sangalang. Here we transfer to cars for the short trip to the old Sigi village. See the magnificently painted sandungs bonehouses and watch as rubber is taken from the trees.
We then move to the village of Bukit Rawi for a stroll through the old town. Enjoy a traditional dance performance by the village children. Return to the boat and cruise to the mouth of the Rungan River for dinner in the midst of the jungle.
Transfer to cars for the trip to Pangenan village. Here we board a large motorised canoe to see orang-utans on Bapallas Island, a beautiful pre-release island in the Rungan River.Birth Ritual in Banjarmasin: South Kalimantan, Indonesia.
