Sosodikon Hill

Sosodikon is derived from the dusun language word ‘sodik,’ which refers to a type of traditional trap used in the past by the local community to catch animals such as deer, squirrels, birds, and other small animals. In the past, when this hill area was still thickly forested, the local community of “villagers” would frequently come here to set traps. Sosodikon refers to a place where traps can be laid.
