Description

This package is a response to popular past demand, for something which combines the best of our 3D/2N Complete Rainforest Experience within a shorter time frame of 2 full days and 1 night - ideally suited for those whose schedules just do not permit the longer stay.

Situated on the banks of the Temburong river, Sumbiling Eco Village is an eco lodge that offers amazing nature based activities including the famous trend, "glamping". Home to the Iban Community, our aim is to achieve sustainability by preserving and maintaining the environment and utilizing existing resources. We also want to promote the harmonious and rich culture of the indigenous tribes of Borneo. Prepare to be enticed with their nature induced simple way of life, mysticism beliefs, culture and unique laws. The Sumbiling Eco Village practices responsible tourism, hence making it Brunei’s first eco tourism destination.

The surrounding area is an epitome of nature’s playground. Temburong district is separated from the rest of Brunei by Malaysia. The Ulu Temburong National Park is regarded as one of the best preserved rainforest areas in Borneo. Our SEV packages include fun filled trekking activities and nature excursions to the renowned park. Here you can find various rare species of Flora and Faunas.

This humbling experience is a perfect overnight getaway, giving you time to breathe and unwind in mother nature. Your trip begins with a 45 minute speedboat ride. You will be picked up by our tour guide and your overland journey to SEV begins. Settle in to your lodging or alternatively take a refreshing dip in the river or rest on the hammock beside the river. Once you have your dinner, proceed to a nearby forested area for a night walk in the forest and spot unique species like glow in the dark mushrooms, stick insects, snakes, giant ants and birds.

Wake up to the morning’s tranquillity and prepare for an interesting day ahead. After breakfast, the Temuai, a traditional boat will take you to Ulu National Park through the meandering rivers. After you register, you will start your jungle trekking activity towards the canopy walk. Be prepared to meet exotic animals such as the Borneo Gibbon, squirrels, bushy crusted Hornbills, Wagler's pit viper, rhinoceros hornbill and swiftlets are notable birds in the park. 

Also friendly residents are four hundred species of butterfly, some quite rare. Enjoy the postcard perfect exhilarating view as you stand 50 meters above ground and immerse yourself in the tranquil view of mountains of neighbouring countries. On your way back, the Temuai will stop by one of the many waterfalls this area has to offer and treat yourself to a nature fish spa.

Alternatively, enjoy rainforest trekking activities. The first part of your trek will take you through secondary rainforest which feature a diverse range of plants with multipurpose benefits such as wild ginseng. These traditional beliefs are inherited from the generations of yesteryears and is still apparent in their lifestyle from laws, mysticism, beauty products and handicrafts. Relish walking across the Mutong River as you trek along some shallow rocky portions. 

After returning, freshen up and get down to a hearty lunch, possibly with a treat in the form of wild vegetables foraged from nearby! Some relax and photo time, and then time to pack up and say good bye. Depart for Bangar, returning to BSB by speedboat*, with fond memories of your rainforest holiday, made possible by Sumbiling Eco Village!
