Lying to the east of Peninsular Malaysia is the island of Borneo. On the northwest side of this huge island are the two East Malaysian states of Sarawak and Sabah, with the independent state of Brunei nestled between them.

The remainder of the island is Indonesian Kalimantan. Sarawak is home to many indigenous hill tribes still living in traditional stilted houses on the riversides – who were still headhunting as recently as during WWII. Sabah is the more mountainous of the two states, and boasts Mount Kinabalu, at 4,100 metres the highest mountain in Southeast Asia.
