The Pinnacle climb is a high risk and extreme activity. The journey started with 10km boat ride on Melinau River followed by 9km walking trail to Camp 5 which is a basic forest shelter for overnight.

One of my favorite food at Kopitiam Thong Kee, bentong’s style wanton noddle. Springy wanton noddle in dark sauce with generous portion of ‘char siew’ and wanton. Yummy noddle which only cost RM5 per serving. Crowded during weekend. Quick service. Bad thing is scarce of parking space around that area.
Bakery shop with varieties choices of breads, buns and pastries. The breads and buns are freshly baked daily. They can custom made the birthday cake based on client’s request. Reasonable prices with friendly staff.
Batu Bungan is a Penan village located along the mid stream of Melinau River. It can be reached in about 30min by longboat from Mulu National Park or accessed by road linked from the Park.

Each family with own leeping quarters but they share a long hall as living room.

Food court with varieties of Sarawak’s local delicacies. Busy food court that crowded with folks for supper at night. The food stall owner will approach you with menu once you are seated.
