What sets this tour apart:
Trek to one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Sarawak and stay overnight in a beautiful village with a scenic view.
What you’ll see or do:
After a 45 minutes vehicle transfer from your city hotel, we reach Bengoh Dam jetty, situated at a mountain opening of the majestic Bengoh Range, for an awesome 20 minutes boat ride across a tranquil lake surrounded by mountains. Once disembarked it’s time for a 30 minute hike to Kampong Kiding with its stunning views of Blue Lake below. We checked into the local homestay and immediately embarked on our trekking adventure to the waterfall.
Today’s hiking continues for around an hour (a little steep at times), but is well worth the effort as it will bring you to a series of spectacular waterfalls whose crystal-clear waters are surrounded by virgin jungle. Part of the trail includes a crossing of suspension bamboo bridge. We settled down under one of the waterfalls to soak in a crystal clear waterfall in the middle of a lush rainforest . Aftera spot of relaxation at the falls it’s time to learn the art of Dayak culinary skills. With bamboo harvested from the jungle this is a hands-on cooking experience that you will enjoy.
Bellies suitably full and dried off from swimming we return to the village passing through pepper farms, where we will see how the spice is harvested and processed.
In the evening, experience the most memorable village stay with the friendly Bidayuh tribe. Learn traditional culinary skills and craft making of the highland.
In the morning, wake up early to view the spectacular mist over the scenic lake below from the vantagepoint of your homestay patio. After breakfast and spending free and easy in the village, we return to Bengoh by boat before transferring (15 minutes) and back to civilization.
Back to basics, simple and healthy lifestyle of the Dayaks. Families with kids and toddlers are most welcome.
