Suai-Nyalau Walk 24-26th April

This trip is a continuation of our December Long Walk to cover the Suai-Nyalau leg, a section we omitted previously.

We will be spending one nite in Kpg Kuala Suai to get to know the approximately 20 house village, an another nite in Kpg Kuala Nyalau. We hope to be able to show the villages some pictures and movies of our journey through the coastal section during our stay with the villages. We are hoping to visit the 112 year old crocodile shaman and family is Suai and talk about crocodiles an dhis craft.

We will also be doing one full day of walking from Kpg Kuala Suai to Kpg Kuala Nyalau, a section of approximately 20-25kms. We will definitely stop by the famed Tanjong Payung and delve deeper into the legend and myth of the place.
