Hey everyone! I'm wondering what other things are available at or near Tanjung Puting National Park other than orang-utans. We'll have ~5 days there, and we're a group of 6 healthy, active 20-something. Can anyone give us recommendations please? Turtle hatching? Hiking? Diving? Anything else? Thanks in advance!
