    I intend to make the trans-kalimantan (Balikpapan - Pontiankak - Kuching - Sandakan) next week 26 June 2018.
    I would like to know the state of the road, especially between Balikpapan and Pontianak.
    I appreciate information from anyone who has already done this route.

    I had done most of Borneo and the route Balikpapan to Pontianak is all sealed tar road.
    Just make sure you have carnet when crossing border to Kuching.
