Travelers, foreign and domestic tourists, if they go to Kalimantan; haven't visited Tanjung Puting National Park in Pangkalan Bun, Central Kalimantan, it feels incomplete.

What is the charm of the Tanjung Puting ecotourism destination?

As it is known that Tanjung Puting National Park is a national park located on the southwestern peninsula of Central Kalimantan province. Tanjung Puting was originally a nature reserve and wildlife reserve established by the Dutch East Indies Government in 1937. Furthermore, based on the Decree of the Minister of Forestry 687/Kpts-II/1996 dated 25 October 1996, Tanjung Puting was designated as a National Park with a total area of ​​415,040 hectare.

We are not discussing the uniqueness and competitive advantage of Tanjung Puting compared to other ecotourism in Kalimantan. However, tracing how the authors conducted research at this location, in such a way, resulted in the birth and publication of this unique collection of short stories: Tanjung Puting in Short Stories.

This is the creative process of a short story - and a collection of short stories - which is unusual.

Along the bend of the river, nipah trees are lined up neatly. The wind that blows shakes the palm leaves and midribs, as if to say welcome. At the sound of animal sounds, and the sound of the proboscis monkeys screaming loudly, how fun.
This is our creative process of writing and making short stories and a short story collection book TANJUNG PUTING IN STORIES. Sultan, Mugeni's cruise ship, he provided complete with rations for the short story writers to the location to study the setting. This is unusual.
