What to expect:
Enjoy nature away from Kuching city for the next 8 hours by visiting Begu Village. After that, you will get to visit local village farm which features all year round pepper plants, banana plants, lemongrass plants, tapioca plants and other local vegetables. Some of the plants will be plucked fresh for cooking lunch afterwards.
You can get to cook lunch at one of the local houses, or if you are fit to trek, at the waterfall of about 30 minutes trek from village. You will get to cook and eat tribal food lunch before departing back to the city.
Do note that transfer by vehicle to the village will take about 1 and half hour driving (60 km distance from Kuching Waterfront).
Trek to the waterfall and even in the village farm can be hilly and wet/muddy too. You will need to have good trekking shoes to go through these places.
Optional (Add-on activities)
i) Semenggoh Nature Reserve is along the way to the village, would be good to stop on the way back for orang-utan feeding session.
ii) Rare giant Rafflesia flower, scientifically named as Rafflesia Tuan-Mudae, an endemic species only available in Sarawak. The Rafflesia only bloom once in a two year, as recorded in Begu village. If you are lucky, you will be able to see it during its blooming period that only lasted for about 7 days.
iii) Intricate cave structures of Turuh Cave and/or Bedoh Cave that exhibit natural habitat for fruit bats, spiders, snakes, swiftlets and many other insects. The caves can be challenging due to its raw nature. No proper walking platform provided. Extra precautions are needed to explore the cave. For Bedoh Cave, we will explore only the front part of the cave, as more advanced equipment is needed for further exploration.

The Begu Heroes Guide consists of initial starting members of Apeng, Leslie, Andy, and Herry. They are an enthusiastic and passionate group of young people who are keen to introduce an unforgettable experience in the village to visitors. The committee members are increasing in number due to your visits, so more people of the village, young and old, participate in guiding and introducing their backyards.
Let the guys bring you also to explore Turuh cave and Rafflesia site before bringing you around their farms. For lunch, they will be able to teach you some cooking skills – jungle style that you might be able to pick up. Their cooking is simple yet delicious!
