Where are we
Kawasan Wisata Pendidikan Lingkungan Hidup (KWPLH), which translates to Environmental Education and Recreation facility, or colloquially also known as the Sun Bear Center, is an environmental education facility located 23 km north of Balikpapan in East Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo.
Own transport is highly recommended since getting a public transport from this place may not be easy by public transport. To use public transport “Angkot”, take the number “3″ from downtown (the Government office) to “Batu Ampar” terminal (fare: Rp. 6,000). From this terminal, take the Angkot No. “8″ and ask the driver to drop you at the location (sometimes you have to say “KWPLH” or “Agro” or “Kilometer dua-tiga”), time about one hour journey and charge you Rp. 6,000 (a normal charge from terminal to the main road but if you want to ask the driver to drop you in, an additional charge will apply!). From the main road, you need to walk in (about one kilometer/1100 yards).
