Murum river

Bakun Hydroelectric dam will flood the entire length of river that once pride homeland of natives collectively known as ‘Orang Ulu’.

Sarawak government ‘politics of development’ policy effectively destroyed the very culture of ‘Orang Ulu’ as their ancestral lands, longhouses, ancient and unique burial grounds will be submerged under water in a few months time.

We have compiled 11 photos by professionals and amateurs photographer of the soon to be submerged places below. Please your drop your comments.
