On our second day at Mulu, our tour guide brought us to a Penan Settlement. To go there, we had to ride a long boat. Thank goodness the engine was so powerful that we arrived there in only 20 minutes. The river was shallow, but our boatman was skillful. He knew which passage that was safe to use.
I was amazed by the beauty of the settlement. Behind the longhouse, I could see Mount Mulu. I was told that, the park can organise a trip to climb Mount Mulu. It takes 3 nights and 4 days to go there and it costs RM1,500 per person. We could hire a porter if we wanted to. Probably my next trip to Mulu will be to climb the mountain.
There’s nothing much to see there. Don’t expect them to perform a blowpipe show or to wear traditional costume. They are not nomad already. But, you can expect a lot of good souvenirs from there. I bought some and my mom bought some too. Hehehe. Of course, our relatives and close friends were given some of the items we bought.
Okey then, the journey continues in my next entry. Guys! Don’t bring big money here such as RM50. No change la… Have a nice day!
