The provincial capital of East Kalimantan is Samarinda, although Sepinggan International airport is near the city of Balikpapan, the place where most people arrive at in the province. There are plans to build a new international airport near Samarinda. The north of the province is served by Kalimarau Airport in Tanjung Redeb, Berau, but there are currently no direct flights from Jakarta meaning a transit in Balikpapan is required.
Not much is currently known about the peaks here, although both Lumut and Beratus are reasonably accessible from Balikpapan, requiring about four days each. Kulat (North and South) are simply two peaks in the vast, beautiful Merabu karst area that is remote and currently difficult to get to.
