Duli Pengiran Muda Al-Muhtadee Billah College (Maktab Duli) Hiking Club members continued their tracking expedition with a trip to Wasai Wong Kadir in Labi, Belait District last Sunday.

The 17 students and three teachers were guided by an Iban tribe from the Mendaram Besar Longhouse, and assisted by Labi Fire Station personnel who ensured the expedition ran smoothly. The students were enthralled to reach the waterfall after a 20-minute trek that included hiking upstream.

The trip was the second of its kind organised by the college’s club this year.

Hikers are advised to register/inform the long house before trekking around the waterfall area, to avoid swimming and to be cautious as the trail is slippery and treacherous.
