Bario and Kelabit Highlands questions

Posted by klb5050 on 13/7/2013 at 05:46

Hello all. I am pretty set on spending around 4 days in and around Bario in the Kelabit Highlands in the middle of October this year. I just have a few questions.

1. How expensive is it for a solo traveller compared to other parts of Malaysia? Is it comparatively cheaper or more expensive?
2. How much can I expect to pay for a guide per day if I were to take a longer trek?
3. Is bottled water available to be purchased in Bario? I feel like it probably is, but I just want to be sure. If not, I guess I could take iodine.
4. How widely spoken is English? i.e. how much will I have to struggle with Malaysian :) ?
