Location : Kampung Awat-Awat, Lawas District, Limbang Division, Sarawak, Malaysia.

The air-conditioned bus from Limbang to Lawas took slightly over an hour passing through Labu checkpoint, Temburong Brunei. Road condition was good. We entered via Pandaruan and exited through Mengkalap border checkpoint  on the Sarawak side.
