Mulu Headhunters' Trail,
Gunung Mulu National Park
Borneo, Borneo (Sarawak)
Info : Mulu Headhunters' Trail
Embark on this 2 night adventure following the Headhunters Trail through Mulu National Park. This combines travelling up the river, some trekking through the jungle and a stay at an Iban longhouse overnight.
The excursion is appropriately called The Headhunters Trail because it follows the old route taken by the Kayan people who carried out headhunting practices (historically only!)
The adventure encompasses a 9km trek and a 11 km trek and boating boat down the Terikan and Medalam rivers, for 3-4 hours, to reach an Iban longhouse for dinner.

A once-in-a-lifetime experience for keen adventurers. Action-packed Borneo holiday including trekking, mountain climbing, and the chance to experience local life.
We all remarked on how well tourism blended in to the local community in a positive way. At no point did we ever feel exploited or taken advantage of. We felt privileged to visit the Penan tribe in Mulu and enjoyed the market there without any pressure to spend money. Visiting Abai village and planting the trees was also a great experience for all ages of our party. Again, a privilege.
