Escape to Tanjung Puting National Park, Borneo

Wednesday, October 2, 2013

I've been surrounded with many happy and committed people around for quite some time and I honestly agree that doing work with the right people would make it turns out to be extraordinary! The same thing happened with these people. I participated as a team committee for this Escape campaign held by Green Sands soft drink. The main purpose behind the word Escape itself is to break free from all the daily routines that sometimes can be perceived as a daunting cycle for many people. Green Sands choose three creative young individuals; Tomy Malewa, Intan Anggita, and Yuyi Trirachma as the lucky winners from "Submit Your Escape Stories" competition and they're being awarded with an adventurous yet inspiring Escape trip to Tanjung Puting National Park.

We had this wonderful opportunity to visit Tanjung Puting National Park, the home of Orangutans in Borneo. We spent four days straight there exploring the green scenes of Borneo forest, cruising around the Sekonyer River, and having an amazing time seeing our long lost siblings, Orangutans in their natural habitat. There are three parts of the Orangutans rehabilitation we came across during our visit; Tanjung Harapan, Pondok Tanggui, and Camp Leakey. Each rehabilitation area allow us to see the Orangutans in a closer encounter, we watch them eat, mingle, and enjoying life. I won't treat this once in a lifetime experience with anything in this world. I'm forever grateful for this amazing work and travel experience. More pictures and stories are coming!
