Location : Dusun Gun Tembawang, Desa Suruh Tembawang, Kecamatan Entikong, Kabupaten Sanggau, Kalimantan Barat, Indonesia.
On the last day (Sunday) at Kampung Sapit, we decided to do a quickie visit to Dusun Gun tembawang (Indonesia side) about 40min trek away. Most parts of the trail have been cemented and pretty soon ojeks will be busy plying it. Had local boy to accompany us. We were here 2 years ago when we did overnight trip to Mureh Falls / Mount Berapi.

Newly mounted Indonesian flag near the border
Arriving Gun Tembawang village
Unexpectedly, when we arrived, headman (or Pak Dusun in Indonesia) of Gun Tembawang had already lined up ‘patients’ for me to be treated.
Had to innovate my treatment tools before the session began. Was caught once in Kampung Semban w/o my treatment tools so I had to grab a piece of laundry bamboo to try splitting it. Turned out so well, tried this again here in Kampung Gun.
Saw 8 of them with lunch in between before hurrying to a small stream for a dip. Must have spent 3hrs all in all before heading back to Kampung Sapit in the rain.
Interesting multi tier tanju
The whole village has just been pathed with with cement by their government
Ku chai like this are delivered daily to Kampung Sapit before transported to the Kuching
