Off the beaten track in the wilds of Sarawak.
This journey of exploration offers travellers an insight into the tribes-people of Sarawak who live deep in the jungle - ideal for those who relish a challenge!
After a stay in the capital, Kuching, you journey upriver to Ulu Ai in the heart of the rainforest for a stay in a native longhouse. You then fly north to the Mulu National Park to explore one of the worlds most elaborate cave systems before setting off along the 'Headhunters Trail'. This physically demanding 4-day trek follows the route taken by Kayan headhunters, up the Melinau River to the Melinau Gorge and through the forest to the banks of the Terikan River. Your exertions are rewarded with a final few days relaxing on the white sand beach to the north of Sabah's capital Kota Kinabalu.
