   5D4N Headhunters Trail Tour (Promo Mulu 2018)

5D4N Headhunters' Trail Tour





One of the best trek in Borneo!. When head-hunting was at its height, a hundred years ago, Kayan war parties from the Baram made their way through the Mulu area to attack the Murut longhouse and Chinese farmers along the Limbang River. Paddling their war canoes up the Melinau River to the Melinau Gorge, they dragged them 3km overland to the headwaters of the Terikan River. The "Kayan Road" a 4 m wide trail with poles laid acrossit to facilitate dragging the boats. Today we called "Headhunters' Trail".

Here, we spend a night as guests of our Iban hosts. Please don't expect any comforts and be prepared for the fact that the living conditions in the longhouse are extremely basic – this night is designed to give you a first-hand taste of how the Iban people live and also provide an insight into their unique customs. We will be sleeping on the ground, on simple mats and it is highly recommended that you bring your own sleeping sheet. The Iban are generally very reserved people unless, of course, they get on to their home-brewed rice wine! In the evening, share a glass of "Tuak" (rice wine) with the Ibans and join in their music and traditional dances. The white-men's version of the headhunters' dance is always the most amusing!. We overnight at longhouse.
