Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by John Callahan

In an area that has seen few visitors since the end of World War II, a short trip up a nearby river is a verdant waterfall in the coastal forest of Halmahera Island in Pacific Indonesia. Our surfEXPLORE group took a break from surfing and our quest to find gasoline to visit the falls, where Orang Asli indigenous people are frequently sighted.

Location: North Maluku Province, Indonesia
