Kelabit is a remote plateau and the easiest and fastest way to get there is by flight. 

It’s possible to go by car too, although it’ is not really advisable because the roads are very bad (actually is a logging road which goes through the plantations). The journey by car may take from a minimum of 10 hours until 24 hours!!!! This particular road get muddy even with very little rain and passengers may be get stranded for hours. 

Flying to Bario is an adventure itself…. an amazing panoramic flight experience but with some possible hitches… 

The route Miri-Bario is operated by a light aircraft (Mas wing twin otter) with limited seating capacity (19 seats). Light aircrafts do not fly when there are strong rains and poor visibility. Bario is a rural airport without a proper equipment, therefore for safety reasons, airline may decide to cancel the flight. Cancellations and delays are common for this particular route especially during the wet season. 

Normally flights arrive and depart early in the morning, when the weather conditions are good. However at this stage, we are unable to give you the exact flight schedule as the airline change it very often. Usually there are 2 daily flights but there are certain days with 3 flights and other days without flights. 

We would recommend you to fly to Miri a day earlier ; overnight at Miri Hotel, as the flight depart to Bario is normally early in the morning. 

Please let us know your further advise on the above so that we can check the availability for you. 

Cheers and look forward to hear from you again soon.
