Rahai'i Pangun

Our cruise boat has a name! On 22 May 2007, as part of the 50th Anniversary Celebrations of Central Kalimantan, at a traditional adat ceremony, local Kaharingan spiritual leaders gave the name Rahai'i Pangun to our cruise boat. Called after a mythical boat which widely traded up the rivers of Kalimantan and throughout Asia, it was famous for its ability to travel cross treacherous seas. Still under construction, the boat will be ready for its first tourists in September.
