Fears of political instability and conflict have hurt tourism, though, in recent years, but there is a good potential for recovery and growth, as facilities and infrastructure are intact, and the exchange rate is favorable to visitors.

Lunch is served on the way to the Lodge where comfortable accommodation is provided in a remote location in the forest on the banks of the Sekonyer river. Because protected areas tend to be in remote locations and deforestation generally increases with accessibility (e.g. topography) and may also be affected by a variety of other factors, a simple comparison of deforestation rates between logging concession and protected areas would misjudge the protection impact of protected areas [44].

Forests protect against erosion, and much of the research into soil and hydrology confirms that, "although it is wrong to assume that no erosion takes place under the forest, there is a jump of major order once the forest is cleared."(3) With the increased erosion of the forests of Borneo and Sumatra, the natural hydrological regimes have become disrupted in somewhat of a domino effect, where increased runoff has lead to greater stream silt yields, that have lead to increased water capacity for rivers and streams causing the possibilities of flash floods after heavy rainstorms.
