Fort-To-Fort Trail: A Cycle Through Sarawak’s History

In a new Borneo cycling itinerary, the “fort-to-fort” project and trail has been developed by the state’s Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MTAC) and organised by Paradesa Borneo, to identify a heritage route six out of 20 forts, linked to the legacy of the Sarawak White Rajahs from over 105 years ago.

The bike trail, marketed as “Cycling the Heardhunter’s Heartland”, follows the trail from Kuching to Batang-Ai, exploring the heartland of the legendary Dayaks along the way.

Once feared as the Headhunters of Borneo, the Dayaks are known for their fearlessness and their daring battles with the White Rajahs, leading the Rajahs to build a string of forts to defend their territory.

Paradesa Borneo, the organisers of this new bike trail, is an adventure travel company that specialises in cycle tours throughout Sarawak with 16 unique bike tours under their belt, ranging from short half-day trips through city heritage sites as well as cross-country cycling adventures such as the Fort-to-Fort trail.

The adventure travel company also offers kayaking, caving and hiking tours around Sarawak in addition to its core products for cycle tourists.
