Bario

Lying at an altitude of about 3,500 feet above sea level in the north-eastern corner of Sarawak is the famous Bario Highland, a Kelabit territory, one of the minority Orang Ulu tribes of Sarawak.  Bario means ‘Wind’ in Kelabit language. (the correct pronunciation is ‘Bariew’).

It is affectionately known as the ‘land of a hundred handshakes’as this is how friendly locals will greet you as you wander around the community.

Bario proper is the gateway to the Kelabit highlands, thanks to its airport and a small network of roads leading to some of the nearby villages. About thirteen villages are located in & around Bario area and Kampung Bario Asal is the first.  This is a must-visit longhouse where one can see the ancient timbers of the unique kitchen darkened by the constant smoke of generations of cooking fires.

Most of the area’s accommodation is found in and around Bario, and it is the main starting point for treks throughout the area. One can go kayaking or immerse in the historical tales of the monoliths that dot the area. The place has incredible organic food such as the famous Bario rice and pineapple. One of their annual events is the internationally known Bario Food Festival also known as ‘Pesta Nukenen’, held in July each year.

Bario | 峇里奥

著名的峇里奥(Bario)高原位于砂拉越东北角科拉毕境内,海拔约3,500尺,是一个乌鲁人的部落。“Bario”源于科拉毕语“Bariew”,意思是“风”。

峇里奥被誉为“友善土地”,意思是当地社群非常友善热情,欢迎各地访客的莅临。

峇里奥是前往科拉毕高原的必经之处,主要因为这里有机场和简单的道路系统,可以通往邻近村庄。本区共有13个村子,历史最悠久的是甘榜峇里奥阿萨,是务必参观的长屋。长屋的厨房是木制的,板墙油黑发亮,是长年累月炊烟熏染的结果。
