Product Description

Bario Highlands is a good place to getaway from the hectic city - it's literally back to nature and simplicity. It is remote with limited electricity. The people are warm, friendly and there are loads of gorgeous jungle trails to trudge on. One of the other things that Bario is famous for, is their salt. Lubang Garam Pa Umor is one of the best-known Bario salt springs.

The spring water, containing brine from lubang Garam Pa Umor, is boiled for 24 hours before the salt is extracted.The Bario salt spring looks just like an ordinary spring. The only difference is the water from the spring is salty. The salty water is boiled until all the water is evaporated, leaving the salt at the bottom of the "kawang" (big cooking utensil).

The remaining water is completely dripped from the salt before it was put in bamboo pipes to be burnt in the fire. This is to harden the salt, which is later wrapped in big leaves to be kept in dry and safe places. The salt is used in cooking and also to preserve meat.
