Rainforest World Music Festival 2012

Date: 13-15 July 2012
Venue: Sarawak Cultural Village, Kuching, Sarawak
Official Website: http://www.rainforestmusic-borneo.com/

The internationally acclaimed Rainforest World Music Festival brings together music from both all over the world as well as from the inner depths of Borneo in this weekend-long festival of music workshops, concerts and performances.

For nearly a decade, the Rainforest World Music Festival has had fans and musicians from all corners of the planet flocking to the famous Sarawak Cultural Village for three days of jamming and grooving to eclectic world sounds.

This year, Borneo Mainland has several packages for visitors to choose from. For more information, please click here.

 

Orang Utan Project

The rainforests around the Batang Ai National Park has long been known to be one of the best places to catch sight of wild orang utans.

Located just outside the borders of the Batang Ai National Park and about a one-and-a-half hour longboat-ride over the Batang Ai lake sits an idyllic lodge - the perfect base to stay when not out on jungle treks to spot wild orang utans as well as their nests.

Directly behind the lodge is a cool and refreshing pool for visitors to relax in after a long day of trekking through rainforest trails. This pool is filled by water from the tall cascading waterfall mere meters away from the lodge.

Just a quick ride downriver from the lodge is a floating Iban longhouse where visitors can mingle with the local people, enjoy the local cuisine of the Iban people and learn the traditional cultures, handicrafts and dances of the Iban tribe of Sarawak.

The Batang Ai National Park is a 4-5 hour drive away from Kuching and located in the Sri Aman division of Sarawak. The Batang Ai Lake itself is a man-made reservoir powering a hydro-electric dam. Aside from wild orang utans, the Batang Ai National Park is also home to a wide variety of unique animals and birds such as gibbons and hornbills.

Photo gallery coming soon.

 

Everland Eco-farmstay

Everland Farm is an eco-farm that aims to integrate a sustainable balance between eco-tourism with that of agriculture and wildlife conservation.

Everland Farm offers farmstay programs to anyone that wishes to get away from the hectic city and relax in a more natural environment. While on the farm, visitors may participate in a variety of activities such as horseback riding, jungle trekking or birdwatching.

One of the farm’s most notable activities is horseback riding. There are several horses reared on the farm that provide not only sports and recreation but also prove to be a good natural resource for organic fertilizer. This organic fertilizer is then used to feed Everland’s signature crop, the Pitaya (or Dragonfruit) – a highly nutritious fruit with many health-giving properties.

On top of the farm’s foray into agriculture and tourism, half the land is preserved for the purpose of forest conservation and rehabilitation. In doing so, it is hoped that the land will develop into a safe sanctuary for local birds and wildlife.

Available activities include: horseback riding, bird watching, jungle trekking, Loagan Bunut river and lake cruise, fishing, longhouse cultural visits with dance performance, and various farm activity experiences such as maintaining and harvesting fruits from the orchard and landscaping.

Please do visit our Everland Eco-Farm photo gallery as well. Added more photos (April 2, 2007)
