Location : Bario, Miri Division, Sarawak, Malaysia.

Bario is a community of 13 to 16 villages located on the Kelabit Highlands in Miri Division, Sarawak, Malaysia, lying at an altitude of 1000 m (3280 ft) above sea level. It is located close to the Sarawak-Kalimantan border, 178 km to the east of Miri. It is the main settlement for the indigenous Kelabit tribe. The name “Bario” comes from Kelabit language and means “wind”. It is also known as the “land of a hundred handshakes” as to depict the hospitality of the local people. (Wiki)

After passing the 4 day stop over here in Ba’kelalan, we finally was able to do the last sector of this long journey to our destination Bario, another highland village. The weather was perfect when we took the 20 mins flight with another Twin Otter.

Flying in a Twin Otter in bad weather was something I always dreaded. The mountainous scenery was good and comforting.

Much have changed. No idea it had a new airport and that the homestay we booked was less than 2 minutes drive away. Felt like an idiot for paying RM50 ringgit for the taxi fare. Well, I supposed it was understandably cut throat time for all businesses during the food festival. Somebody had to play victim.

Their homestay was about 20min walk from the event venue. Considering the amount of highland rice that we had been stuffing ourselves with, the exercise was very much needed.Dayak Kelabit, adventure, authentic, backpackers, destination, Interior village, native, orang ulu, tribe, tourist attraction, travel guide, Trans Borneo, 探索婆罗洲内陆高原, 马来西亚砂拉越, 巴里奥达雅加拉毕族
