Trekking Deep into Heart of Borneo
Today we depart for Batang Ai passing through scenic countryside with a stop for lunch. Upon arrival at the Batang Ai Hydro lake, a longboat journey takes you pass rugged hillsides dotted with rice fields and Pepper gardens to Jambu longhouse. Visit this 9 door longhouse and learn all about this “entire village under one roof.”
Accommodation is at the longhouse and after dinner join the longhouse residents for a glass or two of tuak (rice wine).
Overnight in the longhouse.
After breakfast, depart for your 3 days / 2 nights jungle escapade, trekking deep into the heart of Borneo, accompanied by experienced Iban trackers. The trek takes you into the remote Batang Ai National Park, near the Indonesian border, between 900 and 1600 m above sea level.
The area is home to a large population of wild orang utans, there is a good possibility of an encounter 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 of your surroundings.
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 stop is inclusive.
