Loksado Trekking

Loksado Trekking, Bamboo Rafting, Floating Market Trip offer trekking in remote village of Loksado, cross secondary forest, hanging bridges and longhouses.

Loksado is in Banjarmasin, South Borneo, Indonesia is one of interesting experiences to explore some parts of Borneo Indonesia. Come and experience the floating market trip on Barito River and Bamboo rafting in Banjarmasin. You can either take the river bus or speedboat (for longer trips) to see the many varieties of fruits, vegetables and local delicacies. You can also sail to Lok Bintan, another floating market in South Kalimantan.

Nice villages are along the way from Loksado to Haratai. You can mingle with the friendly locals who are fond of taking dogs or pigs as pets. Pigs are lovingly addressed as ‘gunik’ in these villages. You will also enjoy majestic green forests and rainforest vegetation along the way. Loksado is a small town about 5 hours’ ride from Banjarmasin, the capital city of South Kalimantan. It is about 3 hours from Marabahan.

Loksado Trekking to Haratai is very pleasant, especially during the time close to sunset in the evening hours. You will pass by rustic wooden bridges, meandering rivers and rainforests. The thousands of twinkling stars in the clear night sky will awe you, bringing you closer to Mother Nature. At Haratai, you can choose to stay with the locals in their homes. You will witness special Hindu ceremonies such as Jujuran, which is a pre-wedding procession of the families of the bride and groom exchanging wedding gifts. This ceremony can take all night long! Join in the celebration created by traditional music, drama and songs held in a communal house, a series of connected homes of several families from the same ancestor. Cempaka is a small city, 5 km from Martapura, Banjar regency, South Kalimantan province. This place was well known in the past as a mining ground for diamonds. People could be seen panning for diamonds at villages in the Cempaka District in groups consisting of one family and its close relatives. The head of the group, usually the oldest, would ask guidance from the spirit of the village to lead them to the richest mining ground.

Diamonds are cut and polished in the Diamond Market of Martapura, 40 km from Banjarmasin, its province capital. Such places are always better known than the sites where the diamonds are found. That is why Martapura is also known as Diamond Town. There are several well known experts in diamond processing in Martapura. South Kalimantan diamonds are classified as black diamonds, colourless diamonds, petrous lower quality yellow diamonds, and pink diamonds with high brilliance.

In 1965, a 166 carat pink diamond known as the Trisakti Diamond was found in the Cempaka region. The Indonesian Government had the rough stone cut by Joseph Isaac Asscher in Amsterdam in that year. Martapura's diamond mining has a long history. Dating back in the 15th through 19th centuries, the diamonds from Landak, in Borneo (Kalimantan) were particularly prized for their brilliance and variety of colours.

At that time, Borneo was part of the Dutch colonial empire (Dutch East Indies) from the 1600s to the early 1800s, when it came under the control of the British North Borneo Company. During the 18th century, the Dutch produced approximately 50,000 carats of rough Borneo diamonds annually. Book your 2017 Loksado Trekking with your friends or family. Because Life is short.
