Task 1:
Now, read the text carefully. What do you think about the
place described below?
Tanjung Puting National Park
One of the internationally famous ecotourism destinations
in Indonesia is Tanjung Puting National Park in the southwest of
Central Kalimantan peninsula. Tanjung Puting National Park offers
impressive experience to its visitors.
This is called a park, but unlike any park
that you have seen in your city, this is
a jungle! It is a real jungle, which is
home to the most incredible animals in
the world: orang utans and proboscis
monkeys! The male proboscis monkeys
are interesting because they have
enormous snout. So, imagine yourself to
be in the jungle and meet these special
animals in their original habitat. What
will you do when you meet them?
To see orang utans we should

go to Camp Leakey. Camp Leaky is
located in the heart of Tanjung Puting
National Park. This is a rehabilitation
place for ex-captive orang utans and
also a preservation site. This camp
was established by Birute Galdikas, an
important scientist who has studied
orang utans since 1971.
To reach the place, we should take a boat down Sekonyer river.
The boat is popularly called perahu klotok which is a boathouse
that can accommodate four people. The trip by the boat to Camp
Leaky takes three days and two nights.
The traveling in the boat offers another unforgettable
experience. You sleep, cook, and eat in that klotok, night and day
during your journey into the jungle. In daylight, on your way to
Camp Leaky, you can see trees filled with proboscis monkeys. At
night, you can enjoy the clear sky and the amazingly bright stars
as the only lights for the night.
