Event Details

The Notolon Tarob Festival (Solar Eclipse) is held in October to commemorate the solar eclipse that took place in the Matunggong District on this date in 1994. This phenomenon is very rare and highly regarded by the Rungus people as they believe an eclipse is a sign of disaster if they are unable to appease a young sky God named Tarob. The celebration is held in a longhouse where family and friends gather to sing traditional songs and dance the mongigol sumundai to the mesmerizing beats of the gongs. Other activities include cultural performances, Matunggong Photography Carnival, antiques exhibition and an open air market. Don’t miss the taste of Tinupak, one of the notable Rungus Special Brew.
