Description

Miso Walai Homestay Batu Puteh is in the heart of the Lower Kinabatangan River Valley, on the East Coast of Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. It is 110 kilometer south of Sandakan Town, which is a large fully serviced provincial centre with a population over 340,000 people. Batu Puteh is reached from the Sabah’s Capital City Kota Kinabalu in 5 hours by road, or from Sandakan City in approximately 1.5 hours drive.

It is a hotspot for rare and endangered species such as Bornean Pygmy Elephants, Gibbons, Orangutan, Proboscis monkeys, Hornbills and many more rare and spectacular birds and wildlife, all of which are relatively easily seen here.

An evening or dawn boat ride is an experience that should not be missed, not only to catch sight of rare and spectacular primates and birdlife species seen nowhere else but the sheer breathtaking beauty of the river is a humbling experience.

The locals of this village (the “Orang Sungai” or River People) have a special place in the rich ethnic and cultural heritage of Sabah. Written records dating back more than 1000 years mentioning the area and the people. The historical glory is preserved for posterity in the ancient burial caves found in the centre of Batu Puteh Village. In the upper cave chambers of the Batu Tulug outcrop, unique Borneon motifs can still be seen carved ornately into the ironwood burial caskets. This cave outcrop is just minutes off the main highway in the centre of the village and today has a mini-museum to display and protect this heritage site.
