The Hidden Jewel of Borneo

The little-known Orou Sapulot, hidden away in the interiors of Sabah, has now become a new landmark in the naturalist map of Borneo, if not in Malaysia. This place is a majestic natural wonder that has inspired many travellers with its beautiful landscapes and the culture of the surrounding region.  It is fast becoming a must-see destination on every adventure traveller’s itinerary.

Situated off Keningau in Sabah, “Orou” means “Sun” in the native language of the Murut, the third largest indigenous ethnic group of Sabah, whose lives intricately revolve around the forest and natural surroundings. Vast tracts of greenery and unique flora and fauna are found in this territory, while some zones are considered sacred to the Muruts, but are now ready to be visited. An experienced guide will lead you to this largely uncharted world of wonders.

From Kota Kinabalu, one can take transportation to the town of Keningau and direct to Orou Sapulot, a journey that lasts between two and three hours all together. Upon arrival in Labang, access Pungiton Eco Camp by boat, or choose to stay at the wooden huts of Kabulungou Waterfall or Romol Wooden Longhouse, either which will give you the experience of being immersed in nature.

Due to the diverse geological landscape of the area, there are opportunities to explore caving in the sacred Pungiton Cave, jungle trekking to inspect the exotic plants and wildlife, rock climbing to Batu Punggul, and rapid shooting down the river.

A visit to the local village will open up your eyes to the culture of the region with its unique food, rituals and celebrations. Don’t forget to sample the intoxicating local rice wine.

The 3-day 2-night Orou Sapulot adventure by Sticky Rice Travel was recently awarded a Malaysia Tourism Award for Most Innovative “off-the-beaten-track” tour package.

If you want to have jungle trekking with a cultural touch, Orou Sapulot is the place to be. “Pristine, history-rich, challenging and mysterious” are a few of the words that can describe the place if you have yet to go, but “memorable” is the word to use if you have been there!
