Bario Highland, Baram, Miri

Bario means ‘Wind’ in Kelabit language (the correct pronunciation is ‘Bariew’).  Lying at an altitude of between 3400 to 6000 feet above sea level in the north-eastern corner of Sarawak is the famous Bario Highland, a Kelabit territory, one of the minority Orang Ulu tribe of Sarawak.  As it is in the highland, the weather is different from the low land, here it is colder at night & hotter during the day time as compared to the low land weather.  There are about 13 villages located in & around Bario area, while Kampung Bario Asal is the original village of Bario.
