Tour Description:

How often do you get to visit and explore a hydroelectric dam? Most of you may have answered with none at all. Well, you are in luck! This one-of-a-kind dam exploration tour is designed to give you a taste on how a dam operates and what specifics are involved in generating and running a hydroelectric power station. The towering Bakun Dam was first constructed in 2009 and it was not until 2011 that the construction project was finished. Interestingly, the plant was originally meant primarily for Peninsular Malaysia and not for Sarawak (where the plant was located). The transfer of the electric power is to be conducted via a 730 km overhead HVDC transmission lines in East Malaysia, 670 km of undersea HDVC cable and 300 km of HDVC transmission line in Peninsular Malaysia. More interestingly, your tour will take you around the vicinity and into the interior of the dam itself. You will have many chances to look around the world’s tallest concrete-faced rockfill dam (CFRD) in the world.

Day 1 – Miri / Bakun Jetty / Jelatong

You will be picked up from your hotel at 7:00 A.M. before proceeding with a 5 hours’ journey by a 4WD ride to Bakun. The Bakun Dam is an embankment dam located in Sarawak, Malaysia along Balui River and the tributary of the Rajang River located approximately sixty kilometers west of Belaga. Upon your arrival at Bakun Jetty, you will transfer to Jelatong for local lunch on a floating house. At 2:00 P.M. in the afternoon, you will begin your tour around the lake. You will start off with a boat cruise along Bakun Lake. While you are on the boat, you will also have a chance to do some fishing or even some light swimming at the lake. At 5:00 P.M., as the sun starts setting and you are free to enjoy the breathtaking view. You will then head back to Jelatong for your scrumptious local BBQ dinner. At night, you can also go for some fishing at Jelatong. Once you are satisfied, retire to your abode and retire for the night.

Day 2 – Lake Cruise / Waterfalls

Today, you will resume your journey much like the previous day. But not before you catch that sweet early morning sunrise and breathe in the fresh morning air. After breakfast at Jelatong, you will board your boat and go for some waterfall exploration around the dam. Lunch will be served on a picnic before you proceed back to Bakun Jetty and head back to Miri on your 5 hours’ land journey. This second-day journey is the perfect opportunity for you to catch up on what you might have missed the day before. Do not forget to also capture the moment of your journey with your cameras for a memory of a lifetime. After all, how many people can say that he/she has toured a hydroelectric dam before?
