Wild fruits of Sarawak

Sarawak is truly a land of the exotic. From its ethnically diverse people and so much culture to explore, to its array of unique food made from jungle harvests. Here we highlight more exotic offerings from the Land of the Hornbills – the wild fruits of Sarawak.

Orchid: Petals Galore

One place in Kuching that will definitely put a smile on every visitors face is the famous DBKU Orchid Garden, right in the heart of the city, just across the river from the famed Kuching Waterfront.

The lush rainforest of Northern Mulu: Mentawai

Mentawai is part of the famous Mulu National Park and is located on the uppermost north of the park. It sits near some of Sarawak’s major attractions including The Pinnacles, among the most amazing karst sculptures located in the Gunung Api formation.

Mount Murud: Above the clouds

Standing at 2,423 metres above sea level, Mount Murud is the tallest peak in Sarawak. There are hidden treasures that are not known to many others in Mount Murud. About two to three hours’ walk away from the church camp lies the Rock Garden, an area filled with unique giant rock formations in an exposed area.

Rafflesia lure at Padawan

Touted as the world’s largest flower, the Rafflesia is a rare species of plant found mainly in Gunung Gading National Park Lundu and now also found in Kampung Temurang, Kampung Belimbing and Kampung Begu Padawan in Sarawak.

Niah National Park

Niah is one of Sarawak’s smaller national parks, but it is certainly one of the most important, and has some of the most unusual visitor attractions. The park’s main claim to fame is its role as one of the birthplaces of civilisation. The oldest modern human remains discovered in Southeast Asia were found at Niah, making the park one of the most important archaeological sites in the world.
