Welcome to Melak


Centuries of culture, however, can't be erased with a few years of coal money. Spend any time here and you are as likely to find yourself invited to a Dayak funeral as to stumble across a cock fight. Start your wandering with the still-occupied longhouse at Eheng or the Kersik Luway orchid preserve.
