Rungan Sari is nestled in over 50 hectares of forest, 36 kilometres north of the city of Palangka Raya; the capital of the Central Kalimantan province.
It is a residential community of 40 houses, which is also home to Bina Cita Utama School with 136 students, the Rungan Sari Resort with 24 bedrooms, the Eco Village with 16 bedrooms in wooden cottages, the Muhammad Subuh Centre, a large 400 person meeting facility, with break out rooms and cafe, and the Latihan Hall for exhibitions. There are green areas, sports fields and a more intimate Kedung Jati Cafe for photo exhibitions and a meeting point.
Rungan Sari is close to Sei Gohong village and the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation's Orangutan Rescue and Rehabilitation and Education Centre, where orangutans can be viewed on the pre-release forest islands. Tangkiling Hill, with short climbing trail to the top, is also nearby, along with other walking and cycling trails.
Site of GIN Kalimantan 2016 with 300 participants, Rungan Sari has also catered for a number of international and national gatherings.
In easy distance from national parks, famous for their wild orangutan populations, as well as unique Dayak cultural buildings and traditional sites, there is plenty to choose from in the range of short or longer tours for students.
