Places of Interest in Tajung Isuy, Kalimantan
This lisle settlement around Lake Jempang
in the lake studded East Kalimantan hinterland, has a traditional Dayak
longhouse which has been turned into lodges for visitors. The grave of a
Benuaq Dayak chief lies aside the hamlet's only road. Visitors are
usually given a traditional Benuaq Dayak welcome. The trip to Tanjung
Isuy over the Mahakam river is a long but interesting one past floating
villages and forest scenery. If you are lucky, you can watch a belian, or
witch doctor, dressed in his skirt of leaves, cures his patients at
night by performing the rites prescribed by ancestors to the frenzied
accompaniment of gongs and drums. Many Benuaq Dayaks still prefer the
old cures to the modern ones at government public health centers which
are nearby.
