Pontianak Tours


Heart of Borneo (HoB)

Heart of Borneo (HoB)is an initiative of three countries, namely Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia and Malaysia to manage highland tropical forests in Borneo that are based on the principles of conservation and sustainable development.
The Heart of Borneo (HoB) refers to the main part of the island where forests remain intact. Covering an area the size of Utah in the US, Victoria in Australia or the whole of England and Scotland put together and extending into the territory of the countries of Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia and Malaysia, it is one of the largest transboundary rainforests remaining in the world. But the Heart of Borneo is not just a treasure trove of biodiversity - it is also a source of life and livelihood for people, providing ecological services for at least 11 million Borneans, including a million forest-dwelling indigenous Dayaks.
