River tourism is an anti-mainstream holiday option that is too bad to miss. Not just daydreaming and calming the mind, currently many river tourist destinations in Indonesia offer special interest that is worth trying, such as rafting. This time, we introduce you to several river tourist destinations in Indonesia.

The first destination and a target for tourists is the Mahakam River, in East Kalimantan. Being the second longest river in Indonesia, the Mahakam River offers a pleasant river holiday experience. This 920-kilometer-long river is home to rare animals, such as freshwater dolphins known as "Pesut Mahakam" or "Mahakam Dolphin". Besides that, you can meet king prawns, hornbills, storks, langurs, and otters in the Mahakam River.

Apart from beaches, Bali also has an interesting river tourist destination to explore, namely the Ayung River. The longest river in Bali, located in Ubud, is known as a white water rafting spot with six levels of difficulty. On the Ayung River, you will also be amazed by its clear water, cool air, and stunning views. Because it is so beautiful, the length of white water rafting on the Ayung River, which reaches 10 kilometers, feels very easy and enjoyable.

The next river tourist destination in Indonesia that is also interesting to explore is in Pangandaran Regency, West Java. It is the Cukang Taneuh River, more popularly known as Green Canyon. In the local language, Cukang Taneuh means "Land Bridge". Its name is based on the natural bridge that originates from the ground and crosses the Cijulang River. One of the interesting activities to try on the Cukang Taneuh River is taking a boat while exploring the Cijulang River. Along the journey, you will be amazed by the unspoiled natural beauty, and pass through caves filled with stalactites and stalagmites.
