ABOUT US @ OROU SAPULOT
"OROU" in the Murut language is defined as "SUN". This itself reflects to the aim of this Community Based Eco Tourism Project founded by Mr. Richard Sakian Gunting who is a Murut Tribe Descendant, with the vision of bringing a new life towards the conservation of Flora and Fauna as well as the Murut Cultures which are slowly fading away.
This Project is aimed at bringing the Muruts of Sapulot together to protect the environment and Murut Culture through a responsible and sustainable approach to address matters such as the depleting forests due to illegal Logging activities as well as lost of Culture due to the modernization and the young blood migrating to the city for income opportunities.

Not only is one able to indulge into the beauty of Mother Nature to the fullest but also experience the other wonders and challenging activities which are offered within the Sapulot - Logongon area.
