In the far far southern corner of the State of Sabah near the borders of Kalimantan and Sarawak once lived a legend called Upai Semaring, a giant, village chief and warrior who possessed special powers. This place is called Long Pasia, home of the Lundayeh people. The Borneo Expedition will make a 5 days expedition to explore and document the beauty and historical sites of the Ulu Padas area from November 18th to 22nd this year. The team will camp at the Maligan Forest Reserve, trek to the Maga Falls, ancient burial sites and historical traces of Upai Semaring’s cave, foot prints, cooking stones and carved rocks. The expedition will be led by Nooh, a strong historian of the Lundayeh people who often wonders into the forest some say up to a month alone to discover new historical and geological sites.
