Every country in Indonesia has its own specialty. Bali has its culture and beautiful terrace. Yogyakarta has its Keraton and sweat food. And, in my recent place, Borneo, it has beautiful swamp that lies until the foot of sky.
Hulu Sungai Selatan Regency in South Kalimantan is one of the regency that has wide beautiful swamp. Native people here makes traditional house with wood-material and the houses have “foot” to make distance from water. They do many activities near and in the swamp, like bathing, fishing, and toileting. We can say that the swamp is part of their live – although (may be) some of us will see it as unhealthy live.
With so many wide swamps in this regency (and also many places in Kalimantan) can be one potential place to be a recreation area, photography, or research area basically for swamp ecosystem. Off course, it needs government concern and people support to make it happen. Good infrastructure and promotion must be set up to realize swamp eco-recreation area. Let us see beautiful view in swamp area when I had journey with my friend to Hulu Sungai Selatan Regency in South Kalimantan. Hopefully you enjoy the views.
