Experience the natural and cultural heritage at the Long Semadoh Valley, a hidden paradise in the paddy fields of the Sarawak highlands.

Tucked 3,000ft above sea level in the highlands of Lawas, Long Semadoh Valley is home to the indigenous Lun Bawang people, and spectacular natural beauty. This lesser known valley is graced by lush scenery and rushing streams, along with the warm hospitality of the Lun Bawang villagers. You can only get to this village with guidance from a local expert.

You are invited to join a 5D4N paddy trip into the highlands, for an off-the-beaten-track experience in the hidden paradise of Sarawak.

    the coordinators are very well versed in what they do hence they can explain in detail all the stages regarding paddy harvesting.

    its definitely a unique experience and an unforgetable one. every one should at least experience paddy harvesting in their life so that they would know the work involve in bringing the paddy from the field to their kitchen. 2 thumbs up!
