Tales of Borneo: Bilit

After Sepilok, we took off on a two hour drive to the village of Bilit, on the banks of the Kinabatangan river. Along that particular stretch of the river are several rainforest lodges which provide a base for visitors to explore the river and its wildlife. Due to heavy rains and flash floods the couple of weeks prior to our trip, some of the roads were quite treacherous, and the pier at our lodge was actually underwater. None-the-less, it was exciting to be staying in the jungle with the rainforest, and wildlife, just outside the window (and in the room sometimes too)!

From top to bottom: flooded pier; boardwalk into the jungle; the flooded Kinabatangan river.
