I'm looking forward to Ba'kelalan Apple Festival in April this year.
Apple Festival is the best time to visit Bakelalan, but make sure you book your accomodation and transportation in advance during that season Bakelalan will be very pack with limited no. of Homestays there. Even your flight tickets need to be arranged much earlier.
may I ask you a few questions? :)
1) kitak pakei tour or pakej kah ms di ba'kelalan ariya. ke backpacking or jln2 sendiri?
One of my colleague is from Bakelalan, so he helps to arrange our trip.
Mostly jalan-jalan sendiri je.
2) 4wd di atas, is it for one way or return? from lawas kan? the price rm1200 for one person or for one transport? did u use twin otter directly from miri to ba'kelanan and going back from ba'kelalan to lawas by 4wd or vice versa?
4WD tu for 1 way from Bakelalan - Merarap - Lawas.
RM1200 is for 1 whole transport which can feed around 6 pax, if per person ride normally cost around RM100 per pax.
We took twin otter from Miri and a 15 minutes stop at Lawas, then take off to Bekelalan. No direct flight to Bakelalan at the moment. From Bakelalan we took 4WD to Merarap then to Lawas.
From Lawas we took twin otter back to Miri.
3) do u have any links or posts that i can refer to?
All my posts on the trip are here:

Sungguh tertipu dengan kehandsoman Justin Timberlake.
Apa la punya skrip, jalan cerita pun macam poyo;
idea ada tapi tak cukup research la..
Rasanya Justin Timberlake ni memang tak sesuai juga nak jadi hero,
kalau setakat supporting dapat kot macam dalam cerita facebook tu.

which make it the best time to travel here would be in April and September every year for the harvesting festival.
When we were there last week, we just missed the harvesting season by a few days,
only the small size (rejected) apples were left for us.
Nonetheless, we managed to taste the sweetness of these famous Ba'kelalan Apples.
There are variety of apples here, among them are Manalagi and Rome Beauty.

Ba'kelalan, life is so peaceful there,
the air is so fresh, and water in the stream is oh so cool and clean..
Ba'kelalan is one of the most important Lun Bawang settlements in the northern highlands.
The village is connected to Lawas and Miri by air, and it is also possible to travel to Lawas via an old logging road. About 3-4 years ago, it used to take the villagers about 3 days journey just to get to Lawas town, now it takes about 5-6 hours drive along the bumpy logging road.
The distance is only about 150km, but the road condition is so bad, that you can only travel by 4x4 on it.

Join me for the unforgettable journey to Ba'kelalan, Sarawak, where adventure lives.
take the twin-otter plane to Ba'kelalan,
From Ba'kelalan we will get a special 4WD, travel along the rough timber road (our playground)
to get us to Merarap Hot Spring.
After a refreshing bath and enough rest at Merarap Resort, we will continue our journey along timber road again, this time to Lawas.
Finally from Lawas we will take another twin-otter plane back to Miri.
Here's how our journey looks like from the big picture.
And here's the zoom in map..
So stay tuned for more updates...

Eugene punya la seronok, siap hentak-hentak kaki lagi setiap kali robot Atom berlawan,
dia takut Atom kalah.
Ada sesuatu yang kurang dalam poster cerita ni,
gambar budak tu - Max Kenton (Dakota Goyo)
Rasa nya budak ni juga antara penyebab kenapa cerita ni sangat best.
Dakota Goyo ni dilahirkan di Toronto, Canada; patutla dia hebat menari ala Justin Bieber gituu..
oh ya, budak ni juga ada berlakon dalam cerita Thor,
dialah Thor masa muda tu.
Ok enough said, just go and watch :)

akhirnya jumpa juga tempat yang ada menjual nasi dagang yang boleh la tahan..
iaitu di Dapo cafe, Satok.
tapi masih tak dapat melawan kehebatan nasi ayam penyet di Rumah Hijau cafe, Satok.
Selain daripada 2 menu ini,
Dapo cafe juga ada menjual ayam percik ...ok-ok je,
kuih jala dengan kuah kari ...sedap,
dan nasi kerabu ...tak minat sangat.
Here are some of the dishes that I managed to capture ...in between handling my super clingy Emmett.
White pomfret with vege
Duck with XO sauce
and the most special dish is the cold dish, served in a bot-style plate, tapi tak sempat ambil gambar sebab sedap sangat.
Once again thank you very much sis :)
