Location : Sungai Tunoh, Ulu Mujong, Kapit, Sarawak, Malaysia.
A very beautiful Iban village comprising 5 ‘rumah’ (longhouses) is the half way point to Gelanggang Fall. From the Mujong River jetty it will take you less than 2 hours to drive there. Population of the area is about 1k and agriculture is the main activity here. It has some resemblance to Bario and with a flat valley of about 400 acres it could easily be developed into another ‘rice bowl’ just like Bario.

We spent 2 nights here staying with our host Biyang whose wife is a staff of the school. His house or ‘staff quarter’ was tiny but comfy enough for the 3 of us. One our second day, we set out for the second waterfall Mambong about an hour away on the mountain of the same name which is a part of the Hose Mountain Range. A very good potential for nature and agro tourism. (Check out Mambong Fall here) Glad that we decided to stay an extra night. Brainstormed with Biyang, Mao & Stan after dinner and these guys are ever ready to run a 4D3N program anytime. Are you?
