Pa’ Ukat is a charming little village located just an hour’s walk away or approximately 15 minutes by car from Bario airport. Like most villages in the uplands, its residents are a good mix of both young and older folks. The villagers here are normally related to one another by blood or by marriage. While they mostly cultivate wet paddy, tapioca and pineapple, the villagers also practise some hunting.
Pa’ Ukat is still pretty much untouched, with its rivers, jungle streams, waterfalls and rainforest still pristine. The community here is very resourceful, looking no further than the surrounding jungle itself for their source of food, medicine, building materials and tools among other things.
