Mongkos Bidayuh village is located near the Sarawak-Kalimantan border, 103 kilometres from Kuching. Traditionally the Bidayuh lived in longhouses but nowadays most Bidayuh settlements consist of individual houses rather than longhouses. Mongkos is a thriving rural community and home to one of the few remaining traditional Bidayuh longhouses in Sarawak. The 24-door traditional longhouse is made of wood and bamboo and was built in the 1950s. Small fruit and vegetable farms and rice fields surround the village.
