The Meratus Mountains is a mountain range in the Indonesian province of South Kalimantan, on Borneo island. The mountains run in a north-south arc that divides South Kalimantan province into two almost equal parts. Its highest peak is Mount Besar with 1,892 metres.The mountains are inhabited by the "semi-nomadic" Meratus Dayak people.In the 1990s the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation reintroduced 350 orangutans into the protected Meratus and Sungai Wain forests. Due to extensive deforestation the ecosystem of the mountains, including many flora and fauna species are endangered. Traditional Dayak villages are also disappearing.

Where to stay in Banjarmasin

Due to the warm and humid climate of Banjarmasin, you’ll be glad to hear that even the budget-friendly options here have cold showers or air conditioning as standard. If you are willing to pay a little extra, amenities such as hot water, Wi-Fi, and meals throughout the day become available to you in one of several lodgings in the heart of town. A cluster of accommodation sits along or near the Martapura River, while another set of lodgings lie on Jenderal Ahmad Yani street outside the city center. Hotel prices in town remain quite reasonable, but homestays or guesthouses in the area offer an authentic and budget-friendly alternative.
