As it was part of the whole package in visiting Tip of Borneo in Kudat, we didn't manage to put up for a night or two over at the Rungus Longhouse. While on the way back from Kudat, we had our traditionally cooked local cuisine for lunch here which is surprisingly not only good, but healthy! Now you know why the Sabahans are so fit.
We only had the opportunity to view the interior portions of the Rungus Longhouse which was constructed with bamboos all over. An interesting feel to be inside one as I've never been in one prior to this. There were ten rooms attached side by side with a large common area just outside of the rooms and a communal bathroom leading out from the longhouse. After having some photos taken, we decided to get some souvenirs from a makeshift booth inside the house itself. These are all made from beads and chained together to make a fascinating beautiful decor.
One thing's for sure, with that little time given to you, you would certainly be able to still experience the cooling breeze flowing through the strategically built longhouse, the common area shared by the villagers in resting and as well as the common grounds surrounding the longhouse.
