A celebration by the largest ethnic group in Sabah - the Kadazandusun and Murut communities. Held annually to give thanks for a bountiful harvest of rice, this event culminates at the state level in the district of Penampang. Here, visitors can witness and experience the Kadazandusun culture at it’s grandest scale. Join the local folks sing, dance, feast and play traditional games! This is also the time the Harvest Queen (or Unduk Ngadau) is selected.
