Kampong Kiding is a tranquil village located in the Borneo Highlands – home to natives of the Bidayuh tribe. As the village lies in the highlands, you’ll trek up through the Bornean rainforest. Kampong Kiding offers breath-taking panoramic views & is surrounded by nature at its best, with beautiful waterfalls and lush vegetation. You’ll start with a jungle trek that passes exciting bamboo bridges & cultivated lands before arriving at a small waterfall. Upon arrival at the mountain village, you’ll explore with your guide, learn about the daily activities of the tribe & soak up the stunning views of the mountain ranges from a viewpoint. Next morning, take a short walk to see the sunrise from the lookout point. A leisurely trek takes you back to the foothill for your transfer back to Kuching.
