Tour Description:

Adventures come in many shapes and sizes here in Sarawak and a trip to one of the many longhouses is one of them. You are encouraged to stay overnight at the Iban Longhouse located along the Lemanak River. To make the most of your time, depart early in the morning as the journey could take 4 hours (232 km). Look out of the window on your journey as you will pass fields covered in lush green or bright gold, with sheaves of paddy (rice) left to lie fallow; pepper plantations and roadside kampungs.
 
Stretch your legs and fill your stomachs as you stop by the little town of Lachau. The final leg of your journey would bring you to the Lemanak river where you will board a longboat that would take you up to an Iban Longhouse. The enchanting river has been traversed by fearsome pirates and headhunters in bygone days. Today, the people there adopt a different lifestyle; fishing and hunting in the surrounding jungles. You will most likely reach your accommodation: the River Lodge, late in the afternoon where a simple meal will be served for dinner accompanied by traditional music and many rounds of tuak, the native rice wine.

Awaken the next morning to a hearty breakfast spread at the Guesthouse. With a full belly, observe and learn how to use a blowpipe and a cockfight demonstration followed by a nature walk to visit a pepper farm, cocoa gardens and an ancient burial ground. With so much to learn and experience, your morning is bound to be a marvellous one. The trip comes to a close as you head back to the river jetty where you will continue the next leg of the journey by car. Satisfy your stomach with a good lunch along the way before being dropped off at your hotel.
