Journey to the mystical Kelabit highlands

KUCHING: The Sarawak 4×4 Travel and Adventure Club (Sakta) is organising a journey to Bario which promises to be an exhilarating adventure through more than 1,000km of the Borneo Highway and treading through jungles right to the heart of the Kelabit highlands.

Sakta president and event director Bladae Lassem said 70 drivers and their co-drivers in 22 four-wheel drive vehicles would be taking part in this year’s Sarawak North-Borneo Highland 4×4 Expedition 2010.

He said the 6-day event, which would start from September 4, carried the theme “A Journey to the Mystical Land of the Kelabits”.

“Sakta is a travel and recreational club which also stresses on the importance of community service,” Bladae told thesundaypost here yesterday.

He said the expedition would help give off-road enthusiasts the opportunity to experience the enchanting and somewhat mysterious rainforests and virgin jungles of Borneo.

“The participants will also be exposed to the vibrant cultures of the various host communities in selected locations, and to witness the arts and beauties of the local natives,” he said.
