Welcome to Long Bagun
The misty mountain village of Long Bagun is the end of the kapal biasa route at high water and is a fine terminus for your Mahakam adventure. Somewhere in the village, a local entrepreneur is bent over a grinder, polishing a semi-precious stone into a pendant, a Chinese shopkeeper is sweating over a forge, melting gold from nearby mines to sell in Samarinda, and a group of women is tying intricate beadwork for their children's next traditional dance performance. Only travellers determined to cover the whole Mahakam get this far, which is reward enough.
