Rungus Longhouse

Kudat, Sabah

Rungus Longhouse is a traditional show home of the Rungus people in Kampung Bavanggazo, located in Matunggong District about 100km north of KK or 40km south of Kudat town. Accessible from a junction along the main road between Kota Marudu and Kudat, the village lies at the end of the road in the countryside, providing traditional homestay accommodation complete with cultural performances, authentic food and merry swigs of local rice wine ('Lihing'). Visitors can also opt to just explore the house (for a small ticket fee) and interpret its construction, materials, decorations and activities. A second homestay (Maranjak) provides alternative accommodation nearby.
