Today we depart for Batang Ai passing through scenic countryside consisting of quaint little town, villages, paddy fields, pepper and oil palm plantations interspersed with secondary and virgin jungle as the road starts to wind and undulate as you go deeper into the interior. Stop for lunch at Lachau, a small town on the way to the resort.
Arrive at Batang Ai Hydro lake. A 1 ¼ hour longboat journey takes you across the deep blue water of the lake and up the narrow Batang Ai River, past rugged hillsides dotted with rice fields and Pepper gardens, to Jingin or similar. Visit this 10-door longhouse and learn more about this “entire village under 1 roof”. After dinner join the longhouse dwellers for a glass or two of tuak (rice wine). The Ibans are a fun-loving people, and visitors are expected to join in whatever activities are going on in the longhouse. Overnight in the longhouse.
After breakfast, depart for Lingin longhouse for a 3 days 2 nights’ trekking deep into the heart of Borneo, accompanied by experienced Iban trackers. The trek takes you into the remote Batang Ai National Park, rises between 900 and 1600-metre above sea level. The area is home to a large population of Borneo’s most famous residents, the orangutans, where there is a good possibility of encountering with one of these “men of the forest”. Overnight in tents or makeshift shelters constructed from leaves and branches.
Continue trekking and exploring the rainforest, observing at close hand the unique flora and fauna that populate the remarkable ecosystem, and learning how to survive in the jungle. Overnight in the jungle.
After breakfast in the jungle, depart by longboat downriver and across the lake to the jetty. Return to Kuching via the same route. Lunch is served en-route.
Extended stays can be arranged to trek deeper into the jungle, with an ever-greater possibility of seeing wildlife.
