Travelling and Trekking in the Rainforest of Borneo: A Young Czech Couple
At about mid-day of our first day of trekking from Bario to Bakelalan in the middle of Borneo rainforest we met this young Czech couple. Like we did, they also engaged a trained tourist guide. They were well covered with long trousers and real jungle boots. Get the right travel and trekking gears and equipment. Cameras, now very light and user friendly, a handy campanion. As you can see the traditional travel gear and equipment is the staff, or tongkat from cut of a small tree. It was very useful to me either going up or going down steep and slippery slopes that sometime took more than an hour.
