Tour Name : Green Holiday at Sumbiling Eco Village
Tour Code : SEV01
Tour Duration : Approximatively 9 hour

A 45‐minute speedboat ride from Bandar Seri Begawan to Bangar, zipping through 
meandering rivers lined with mangroves and nipah palms. From Bangar, its a short drive and a little trek 
through the jungle to our Eco Village. After enjoying light refreshments of tea and local pastries, cross to the 
other side of the Temburong River by temuai (local longboat). Passing abundant growth of ʹsimpurʹ and bamboo, 
the trek in the forest will show you the ʺrainforest as a supermarketʺ to the villagers. Search for edible fruit, 
medicinal herbs like wild local ginseng as well as other useful plants. Relish the adventure of crossing the 
Mutong River, river trek and, subject to river condition, floating down Mutong River or Temburong River by 
rubber tube or bamboo raft (tube and raft use is chargeable). Freshen up then enjoy a hearty lunch prepared by 
local villagers. Some relax and photo time, and if time permits, a visit to an Iban longhouse before departing for 
Bangar, and returning to BSB by speedboat.
