Wild Caving, Repelling, Trekking, White Water Rafting, Kayaking
16 days 2 - 6 guests
This multi-sport adventure explores the remote areas of the almost mythical island
of Borneo. Land of headhunters in the past, this is also an island full
of amazing peaks, white water rivers, the largest caves in the world, and
slow moving jungle streams. In addition to exploring the largest caves in
the world, we will don headlamps and repelling ropes to do some real "wild"
caving in untrod caves. There is trekking to the summit of Mt. Kinabalu,
the tallest peak between the Himalayas and New Guinea, as well as hiking
the "Headhunters Trail" in the jungles of Mulu National Park.
On the water we kayak a placid jungle river to see a variety of bird life
as well as raft white water class III rapids. In the jungle we explore the
high canopy on a "canopy walkway". We will stay with various clans
of Iban tribespeople. Once notorious headhunters, you will still see skulls
hanging in their "headhouses". Fortunately, this practice has
stopped, but plenty of the old ways remain. There is no other trip like
this in Borneo or perhaps anywhere!
