Barito long, passing the two regions namely South Kalimantan and Central Kalimantan provinces.
Barito River has two tributaries of the River and the Nagara River Materials or Martapura. Around the River Nagara River with its branches Tabalong, Balangan, Pitap, Alai, Amandit and Amas, settled most of the population of South Kalimantan.

While the upstream direction (north), the intersection has to Barito Kapuas and Palangkaraya. If moving straight down the river Barito, will find three large cities as capital of the district in the province of Central Kalimantan Buntok, Muara Teweh and Cahu Puruk.
