One day offroad adventures in the beautiful landscape of the Bau area 20Km from Kuching. The BAU HISTORY TRAIL visits gold mines, historic villages and caves. On the way you will learn about the local history from prehistoric times onward. The TRINGGUS TRAIL visits remote Bidayuh villages (real heads in the head house!) and a 60 minute jungle trek with knowledgeable local guides introduces you to jungle and farm. Depart Kuching 08:45 return 18:00. Both adventures include a Bidayuh style lunch. Finally, if you are looking for Borneo's famed biodiversity, you can find it on THE NIGHTWALK!
