Experience the Long House Stay near Tip of Borneo with your Private Guide

This dramatic headland is situated in the northern-most tip of BORNEO, the third largest island in the world, after Greenland and New Guinea. It is located in the Kudat Peninsula, about three and a half hours (or 215 kilometres) drive from Kota Kinabalu City.

Simpang Mengayau means 'lingering junction' as it is here that the South China Sea lingers and meets the Sulu Seas flowing from the east . . . Enjoy the stunning view. The sunsets and full moons are just beautiful . . . The Pulau Kalampunian lighthouse is a reminder of treacherous coastline and past shipwrecks. On the left is the beautiful beach of Pantai Kalampunian.

It's a lovely easy stroll to the flagpole, the Globe and the rocky outcrop that forms the "Tip of Borneo".

Traditionally, the Rungus people live in longhouses built on stilts, but the shift to modern-day living has meant that the sight of such longhouses are getting more rare.


Day 1 Pick up at 8. 30am from Kota Kinabalu City hotel and depart to Kudat (Tip Of Borneo) for a 3 hours drive from Kota Kinabalu City. Then proceed to Bavanggazo LongHouse Village for check in, the Rungus people live in longhouse built on stilts. In Kampung Bavanggazo near Tinangol in the Kudat district, you can still experience this fascinating communal lifestyle in a purpose-built longhouse constructed entirely of traditional materials but with added modern comforts like toilets and shower. Lunch will be served in Rungus style.
Continue our journey to Tip of Borneo to catch the beautiful view of the sunset. Then back to Bavanggazo Village for a rest. Traditional dinner will be served and followed by a traditional dance performance by the Murut and Rungus tribes. Stay for a night.
Day 2 Breakfast will be at LongHouse, then proceed to Sumangkap Village, where there is "Gong" making by the local, continue our journey to the last stop at the Gombizau Honey Bee Farm. After lunch return back to KK city hotel.
