According to Journey Malaysia,

The orang ulu are made up of a few tribes namely the Kenyah, Kayan, Klemantan, Kelabit, the Lun Bawang, Penan as well as a few minor tribes in the interior. Orang Ulu, means the “up-river dwellers” mainly living in Central Borneo, which accounts for 5.5% of the population.

However, among these tribes, the three major tribes are the Kenyah, Kayan and Kelabit. A detail explanation on these tribes will be explain in the future posts.
