Belanum ‘The Floating House’, Bakun, Bintulu

Sarawak Malaysia Borneo Adventure Bakun

The highlight of this trip is the Belanum or locally known as Jelatong – the floating house.  What makes it more interesting is because this Belanum is floating on Bakun reservoir – the world’s second tallest concrete rock – filled dam size 695sqKM, about the size of Singapore. So far there’s only one Belanum that caters for visitors which belong to Mr Luhat.  This Belanum has 4 rooms that can accommodate from 1 to 4pax per room.

It offers great picnic spot and waterfall.

This Belanum can carry about 20 people at one time. Equip with 2 bathrooms, 2 toilets, a dining hall and a kitchen; which makes it another perfect gateway for those who want a peaceful holiday gate-away, especially Anglers.  Consider ‘heaven’  to the enthusiastic Anglers.  Here they may find indigenous species of fish like Ikan Baong (catfish) and if you’re lucky you might fish Semah (one of the most expensive & high demand fish in Sarawak). For non-anglers, you can enjoy a peaceful day by going for a swim or picnic at the nearest river. Jungle trekking or bird watching while cruise at the reservoir is some of the activity that you may enjoy as well.
