Visit Kelabit Highlands
On the border with the Indonesian province of Kalimantan lies this remote highland region named after one of Sarawak's ethnic groups, the Kelabits, although the Penan and Lun Bawang people also live in the area.
The Kelabits remain largely cut off from the outside world, farming rice, fruit and vegetables among the temperate hills that provide a welcome relief from the hot and steamy lowlands.
The highlands' hub is the small town of Bario, which can easily be reached by light aircraft from Miri. It's possible to lodge here with the local Kalabit people, venturing out along ancient forest trails to visit tribal villages and traditional longhouses.
