Some of the Kadazandusun girls I came across were not camera shy and willingly posed for me with their beautiful Rungus attire. The Rungus people are mainly found in the Kudat district of Sabah. The local name for the Rungus top is banat tondu while the knee length skirt is called tapi rinugading. The Rungus people are also well know for their beadwork and costumes and the Rungus Girls wear them beautifully here.
Kadazandusun girls from Sabah are also great to photograph especially when they are in the full traditional attire. One of the best times to do this is during the Sabah Fest or during the Kaamatan Festival (Pesta Kaamatan) which is the Harvest Festival for Sabah usually during the entire month of May.
