The main attraction is the Silabur cave as well as the Mongkos Longhouse, located 20 minutes drive away from the cave attraction. The cave has been gaining popularity with local weekend hikers from Kuching, and the village tourism committee hopes to make this attraction an even more well known attraction through hosting of the Sarawak Adventure Challenge.
