Bario means “Wind” in the Kelabit language. The Bario Highlands is situated nearby to the border of Kalimantan - Indonesia. It is also known as the 'Land of a Hundred Handshakes' to depict the hospitality of the local people. Due to the geographical barrier, Bario island was isolated from the world until a small airport was built in 1953. To get to Bario, you are only able to travel from Miri or Marudi. Over a century ago, the Kelabit tribe were known to be involved in headhunting raids. Today they are known for their friendliness and hospitality. Bario is well known for its Bario Rice and Bario Pineapple.
