Grade: Moderate

Apokayan (Apoh Kayan, high plains of the Kayan) is the name for the area around the upper stream of the Kayan. The region is cut off from the downstream part of the river because of the many impassable rapids. Due to the remote position, just like the upper Mahakam, it took a long time before the first western influences arrived. The fundamentalist mission has been activating for over 70 years, by pushing away most part of the traditional Dayak culture. There is no commercial wood chop in the Apokayan region due to the inevitable transport problem. For the bird lovers, riverside of the Kayan can be a recommended place to visit, as well as sighting plenty of wild pigs, the red muntjac or barking deer, and even clouded leopard showing up occasionally.
