Around the world, pristine primary rainforest is an increasingly hard thing to come by, often nestled far up remote rivers and deep within national parks. This is what makes Ulu Temburong all the more remarkable.
Not only has it survived the onslaughts of deforestation relatively unscathed, it offers an unparalleled insight into what the whole island of Borneo once looked like - and there's the chance to get a bird's eye view.
A canopy walkway was recently built to aid research, and visitors to the area can arrange to climb the walkway to take in the breathtaking view. The easiest way is probably to arrange in the local town of Bangar to stay at lodge on the river. This supports the local people and national park and helps keep Ulu Temburong safe into the future.
For the best view and lowest temperatures, ask about visiting for dawn. This will probably involve getting up at 4:30 am, a quick boat ride and then a short but steep hike up through the forest to the base of the scaffolding.
As you climb, watch out for primates and tree squirrels, and listen out for the deafening '6 O'clock' cicadas - you'll know them when you hear them. Have a camera ready for the moment the sun rises above the distant tree line. It'll be a view you remember for the rest of your life.
