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 the main settlement for the indigenous Kelabit tribe. The Kelabit are an indigenous Dayak people of the Sarawak/North Kalimantan highlands of Borneo with a minority in the neighbouring state of Brunei. The name of the people comes from the local word, “na labid“; where the name of people originated from the name of Labid River. (Wiki) For the older generation, they still bear the traditional Kelabit tattoos, elongated and pierced earlobes as well as heavy brass or hornbill ivory earrings. Elongated and pierced earlobes symbolized great beauty among these people.

While the Kelabit food might not have impressed us that much, their ladies with elongated earlobes and extravagant display of beads did and in a big way. Their men were equally proud with a much simpler necklace highlighted by the red barrel shaped pendant.  Pesta Nukenen, culture, authentic, indigenous, Ethnic, Dayak, orang ulu, Kelabit people, Highlands, Malaysia, tourist attraction, travel, 穿越婆罗洲长耳垂, 马来西亚原住民达雅, 砂拉越巴里奥加拉毕族, culture, authentic, traditional, backpackers, Ethnic, native, orang ulu, tribal, Malaysia, Tourist attraction, travel guide, Trans Borneo, 婆罗洲砂拉越原住民, 巴里奥加拉毕族部落, 达雅长耳垂传统文化, Bario Food Cultural Festival, elongated earlobes, beads, authentic, indigenous, traditional, Ethnic, Dayak Kelabit, native, orang ulu, tribal, Sarawak, Travel, Borneo, Malaysia, Pesta Nukenen, Bario culture festival, beads, tribal, traditional, Ethnic, Dayak, orang ulu, Kelabit Highlands, Malaysia, Sarawak, Borneo, 探索婆罗洲游踪, 马来西亚高原原住民, 加拉毕族长耳垂文化, Pesta Nukenen, Bario Highlands, elongated earlobes, interior village, authentic, traditional, Ethnic, native, tribal, Kelabit people, Malaysia, travel, 婆罗洲达雅文化, 砂拉越巴里奥原住民, 加拉毕族长耳垂, beads, authentic, indigenous, traditional, Ethnic, Dayak, orang asal, tribal, Highlands, Malaysia, tourist attraction, Borneo, 婆罗洲达雅传统文化, 砂拉越巴里奥原住民, 加拉毕高原长耳垂, Pesta Nukenen, Bario Food Culture Festival, beads, authentic, indigenous, traditional, backpackers, native, orang ulu, Kelabit people, travel guide, Trans Borneo, 马来西亚旅游景点, 砂拉越巴里奥原住民, 加拉毕族长耳垂文化, Pesta Nukenen, Bario Food Cultural Festival, beads, authentic, indigenous, Ethnic, Dayak, native, orang ulu, tribal, tourist attraction, Borneo, 跨境婆罗洲游踪, 马来西亚砂拉越文化, 巴里奥加拉毕长耳垂族Pesta Nukenen, Bario Food Culture Festival, beads, indigenous, destination, Interior village, Dayak, native, orang ulu, Malaysia, Tourism, Trans Borneo, 穿越婆罗洲游踪, 砂拉越原住民文化, 巴里奥加拉毕族长耳垂,The once upon a time iconic feature of Borneo ladies are now kept alive by just a handful of Kelabit ladies who are riding into the sunset with their long rich culture. We were fortunate to be able to see them at the Nukenen Festival and keep the precious memories here on our Facebook page. However, their antique necklaces and bead caps would be passed on to their daughters or daughter in laws not only as expensive inheritance but a reminder of a status symbol they held once upon a time in history. Priceless. Next…..Things we did in Bario
