Sekonyer is a river in southern Borneo. Part of the river traverses the Tanjung Puting National Park.[1] Travel on the river is often done by klotok, an Indonesian riverboat.[2] The river includes orangutan habitat. The river is brown and murky.[1] Gold mining takes place along it.[1] It is a tributary of the Kumai River, and is fed by the Camp Leakey River.[1]
