The Kelabit Highlands, Sarawak’s ‘Shangri-
La’, provide a welcome relief from the
coastal plains. At 1000 metres above sea
level, the climate in Bario is noticeably
cooler than in the lowlands. Visitors be
warned: a light pullover or jacket is needed
to keep warm at night!
The Kelabits cultivate Bario rice, a fragrant
variety of this precious grain, which is
greatly sought after in Sarawak.
