Lekasi Waterfall & Long Malim Kenyah, Sarawak Tegulang Resettlement

Location : Tegulang Resettlement, Murum Dam, Belaga District, Kapit Division, Sarawak, Malaysia.

The Lekasi river flows between the villages of Long Malim P and Long Wat. Further upstream, these 2 villages jointly run a ‘tagang’ system of fish farming where selected fish species are reared in the shallow river and harvested once a year. nature, outdoors, waterfall, backpackers, destnation, Tegulang resettlement, Long Wat, village, Belaga, Borneo, Malaysia, Dayak, tourist attraction, travel guide, 婆罗州旅游景点 jungle trekking, adventure, nature, air terjun, Sarawak, destnation, Long Malim, village, Kapit, Borneo, Malaysia, Dayak Penan, tourism, travel guide, 沙捞越旅游景点

After the brief visit at the tagang site, we continued hiking for about 10min to the Lekasi waterfall. The river current was strong near the waterfall. Rock surface was very slippery. It was early morning and the water was cold. Not the best time to go for a swim.

Our guide Abong took the opportunity to teach us the use of plants as medicine. As he showed and explained the many types of plants around us, we video recorded it. Please check out our video above. Subscribe to Bombastic Borneo on Youtube so you will not miss out on our videos.

We ordered some cold canned drinks and had a good chat with her and her daughter in law (originally from Uma Bakah). She was quite a story teller, speaking in local Malay.

She apologized for having only fried fish. Despite being vegetarians, we politely obliged by eating just the white rice. The most difficult lunch of our lives. We thanked her nonetheless and bade her farewell. Please note that petrol and diesel are available here at her shop. Next…….Belaga
