The complete Bidayuh tribe adventure that brings you to the village above the clouds; Kiding village to experience traditional food, games and music, trek trough tropical rainforests and catch the beautiful sunrise at the village viewpoint.
Kampung Kiding is an absolute gem hidden in the mountains. Located high up and tucked in Mount Kiding, Kampung Kiding offers visitors unparalleled, cascading view from the mountain top. Being so high up, the village is disconnected from the main power grid and has to rely on diesel generators. The place is however very chilling throughout the day and thus, discounting the need for air-conditioning. Due to it being 500 meters up, visitors have to trek for two hours to reach the village though you might be able to flag down the passing motorcycles ridden by the locals.
You can find numerous interesting things here in Kampung Kiding, like big waterfalls, bamboo bridges and mountain top views.
