The Kelabit Highlands in Sarawak Borneo are one of the most isolated settlements in Borneo Malaysia . It is one of the nations most popular destination for the serious hiker offering a wide choice of trails with a cool highland clime averaging between 15C - 23C, set in a location of beautiful villages, friendly natives and breathtaking scenery.
All trees bear flowers at one time or another but not all flowers make a visual impact when they are flowering. One of those trees that flower spectacularly is the Crepe-myrtle, but I prefer to call it by its exotic name Rose of India (Lagerstroemia Spp).
As part of a recent trip to West Malaysia with my dad, I decided to return to Langkawi for 4 days as my last visit had not included any serious birding. I had been in contact withJunglewalla about the possibility of seeing some of the rarer bird types on the island.
