hard to stay... the density of the forest are quite compact if u refer here.. http://bit.ly/9CpjMR but hope he will be safe n sound. Borneo still preserve as one of the oldest rainforest in the world.

Quote:

* Sarawak is part of the oldest, biologically-richest rainforest
on Earth - perhaps the world's oldest terrestrial ecosystem.

* The genetic repository of Sarawak dates back as much as 160 to
180 million years--much older than the Amazon Rainforest.

* Sarawak's rainforest has one of the world's highest rates of
endemism.

* Dependent upon Sarawak's remnant rainforest is one of the
world's last tribes of hunter-gatherer peoples--the Penan.

* Despite ecological and cultural richness, this area is being
logged at the fastest rate of logging in the world.

* Virtually every major conservation group in the world as well as
many grass-roots groups are involved in this issue. It is fair to
say that no tropical rainforest/indigenous rights issue has had a
higher global profile.

i've been up santubong a couple of times, i don't think its that dense. but you can sure get lost if you deviate from the trail without a map and a compass.

he should have use his compass,but anyway sometimes when you're so sure about something,that is the time when your carelessness seeps in. anyway again,he's safe and sound already,together with his family.read the news this morning.soon,they'd held kenduri or "makan selamat" or thanks giving that his ordeal is over. so...don't underestimate the "power" of the forest......
