TIP OF BORNEO & RUNGUS LONG HOUSE TOUR

Tip of Borneo & Rungus Longhouse Tour is one of a kind because you will have a chance to see Rungus people and visiting the Tip Of Borneo in the same day. If you are looking for cultural experience like no other, this tour is you. Witness Borneo’s indigenous tribal people in the far north of the island as they work, socialize and observe traditional rituals in their village. Traditionally the Rungus people live in longhouses built on stilts but the shift to modern-day living has meant that the sight of such longhouses are getting more rare.

The Dramatic headland of the Tip of Borneo & Rungus Longhouse Tour is situated in the northern-most tip of Borneo. It is located in the Kudat peninsula, about 3.5hrs (or 215 kilometres) drive from Kota Kinabalu city.

During the Tip of Borneo & Rungus Longhouse Tour you will visit Simpang Mengayau which means “Lingering Junction” as it is here that the South China Sea lingers and meets the Sulu Seas flowing from the east. The sunsets and full moons are spectacularly beautiful. The Pulau Kalampunian lighthouse is a reminder of the treacherous coastline and past shipwrecks.

On the left is the beautiful beach of Pantai Kalampunian. It’s a pleasant, easy stroll to the flagpole, the Globe, and the rocky outcrop that forms the Tip of Borneo. Rungus Long house is located in Kampung Bavanggazo, Kudat.

The traditional dance practices are Tarian Mengigol, Tarian Manaradan, Tarian Mangatip-atip. These dances are regularly performed by the inhabitants. The Rungus people also have their own musical instruments called the Mongurali and the Monundatang. Here’s what it is like to be at a Rungus Long House.
