Next to the Kasepuhan Ciptagelar custom in Sukabumi, then to the Samin tribe in the Kendeng mountains in Central Java, Bromo in East Java, Bali, and so on to Sulawesi, Papua, Kalimantan and Sumatra.
This expedition was Dandhy’s dream when he saw and covered Farid Gaban and Ahmad Yunus traveled around Indonesia in 2009 in an expedition, namely Emerald Archipelago Expedition (Zamrud Khatulistiwa). Dandhy then invited Ucok to tour Indonesia. Ucok himself had joined Watchdoc between 2012 and 2013. And on December 31, 2015, they came home with less than 16 terabytes of videos and photos.
