Tour Description:

One of the unique attractions on your must-see list when you are visiting the great state of Sarawak has to be their longhouses. These structures are built on stilts, serving as the very heart of the community, and can accommodate up to 100 families at a time. You will be able to admire the unique architecture of these structures which include walls made of Belian trees and bamboo as well as a roof made of leaves. These longhouses also can be described as an entire village, packed into a single structure.

Enjoy an informative tour to the Annah Rais Longhouse set amidst the backdrop of a majestic forest. Start off your journey with an 80 km drive from Kuching, heading towards the Bidayuh Land Dayak Longhouse. As one of the largest tribes in Sarawak, this presents the perfect opportunity to have close-up encounters with the tribe. Keep your eyes peeled on your surroundings as the journey will take you past the countryside; dotted with paddy fields, cocoa plantations, pepper vineyards and old rubber plantations. The final leg of your journey will take you through a road surrounded by lush jungle foliage and primary rainforests which are truly sights to behold.

Discover the importance of the Annah Raise Longhouse in the life of the Sarawakian Land Dayaks (also known as Bidayuh) and really connect with the indigenous people. Admire their simplistic lifestyle and their ingenious methods of making the best of whatever nature provides them through basket weaving, rice pounding and winnowing. Be adventurous and explore the longhouse; take a peek at the human skulls kept at the “head-house” alongside their sacred war drum. Away from urbanisation, this feels like a different epoch but it may foster a deeper appreciation for the simple way of life.
