These are some shots of the interior of the main Rungus longhouse of the Bavanggazo settlement. This consists of a number of living quarters for the families of the local community which all open into a large common space. The interior of the Rungus longhouse is well ventilated and fresh even during the hottest hours of the day. Traditional bowl gong musical instruments are kept in the common hall. Nowadays the Rungus longhouses in Bavanggazo are open for tourists who can stay overnight.
