This is yours truly, posing in front of the walkway made of ulin a.k.a. ironwood. I was amazed to know that the walkway was built by volunteers, circa 2002-2003. Ironwood is known for its strength and durability. And it takes many, many years for them to grow. Items made of ironwood might last up to 50 years, and more.
We noticed few female orangutans arrived and began to collect the bananas. No sign of Doyok yet. Kopral, a young male orangutan, came to the site and munched plenty of bananas. He was looking back and forth, afraid that the king would come and shoo him away. He was too young to develop any cheekpads, but maybe one day, if he becomes more aggressive.
Some females carry their young ones with them. Here you can see one of them feeding on bananas with her child. To me, this is an "awww" moment.
Unfortunately after waiting for a while, it was apparent that Doyok wouldn't come. Ah, well. Maybe he was busy somewhere else. During our short trek back, the guide, Mr. Yusup, showed us tropical pitcher plants (kantong semar). These plants are rare and believed to have medicinal qualities. I only saw three from the seven species available in Pondok Tanggui area.
