3 Days 2 Nights Village in The Clouds Trip - Kuching , Sarawak Borneo


Tour Description

Have you ever set foot into a real tropical rainforest? Experience what the pioneering naturalist encountered and join us for a one of a kind tropical rainforest adventure into pristine part of Borneo, just a stone’s throw from Sarawak’s capital city of Kuching. Perched high above the Mountain Range that divides Sarawak, Malaysia and the Indonesian territory of West Kalimantan on the world’s third largest island, Borneo are numerous idyllic Dayak Villages. Maintaining their symbiotic existence with the most bio-diverse tropical rainforest, these indigenous people continue their traditional ways via an agrarian lifestyle.

Your Village host will share what the tropical rainforest means to him. It is after all, his supermarket, general store and pharmacy and his soul’s elixir from the maddening re-settled life of his other “concrete palace”, at the resettlement scheme. Enjoy the serenity of the newly formed lake on your boat transfer. Traverse the many bamboo bridges, be amazed by the magnificent waterfall, fresh and swift flowing, mountain streams and enjoy the sweeping views of rice fields, mountains and valleys as far as your eyes can see as you trek above the clouds.
