< The Bau History Trail >
Relax in air conditioned comfort for our off road adventure on unmade roads and jungle tracks. From ancient volcanoes and earthquakes to gold fever and a massacre this area has more than its fair share of history which we will describe to you during the journey.
We start at the village where James Brooke acquired Sarawak, visit Baa'uh and Bau (it means 'smelly' but it normally isn't that bad!) and on the way we will visit 3 different types of gold mine (all abandoned), the winding passages of the Wind Cave , the only high density fossil beds in the area and a remote Bidayuh village Bidayuh style lunch is served at our own place on the farm. And if you have an interest in plants we pass a colony of the Pitcher plant 'Nepenthes Northiana' which only grows in the Bau area.
The Bau History Trail combines relaxed off road adventure with expert information and all in an outstandingly beautiful limestone karst landscape pictured in the banner image. The walks are not difficult and we can adapt this product to suit those with limited mobility and disabilities. We get back to Kuching between 17:30 and 18:00.
