3D2N BARIO HIGHLANDS
Close to the Indonesian border in the north-eastern corner of Sarawak and dominated by Gunung Murud are the Kelabit Highlands, the highest inhabited area of Borneo. It can only be reached by light aircraft or on foot, not by road or river. Kelabit, Murut, Sabahan, Lun Bawang and Penan are people who live in longhouses at an altitude of 3700ft. wet padi farming is the main source of food, supplemented by hunting and the cultivation of fruit and vegetables for local consumption. In the past salt springs and a fairy rich soil, plus the people’s own industry and ingenuity, made them self-sufficient, needing only iron which was traded for salt and tobacco. Although many people have left the area to work in the towns, enough rice is still grown for home consumption and for sale to other parts of the state.
