ohh Ba'kelalan

Welcome to Ba'kelalan!

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.
